Geneva Haber, AZ, United States Regional Coordinator
"I am very excited about the Global Art Project and happy to help in any way I can. Sharing a desire for peace in our hearts, homes, schools,...world through a handmade work of art is an amazing and affirming process. I feel joyfully called to be a part of expanding participation in this Project."

 

Karen Duperron, Alberta, Canada Regional Coordinator
"I have been an art educator in public and private schools for over ten years. I have lived in Thailand, Brazil, Switzerland and Canada. I met Katherine Josten when I was working and living in Thailand. Her project, GAP, inspired me to seek other participants to help spread peace through art work. Working with children and GAP allows us to be examples of how we can make our world a better place by uniting people all over the world to create art for the sake of peace. I am very grateful for the project. I will continue to spread the word about the Global Art Project in any area in which I live."

 

Amy Svec, PA, United States Regional Coordinator
"Each and every one of us, no matter how large or small we think we are, CAN make a difference. The simple act of creating a piece of art with one's own personal vision of world peace can institute change for as it is viewed by others the artist's positive message creates a ripple effect and inspires so many people to join in the movement."

Syed Imon Rizvi, Pakistan Regional Coordinator
"We need to create awareness about peace and education through out this world. If saving one person is saving all humanity, then conveying message of peace to one person means conveying it to whole humanity. Helping those who are helping others would be considered a good act as well so thats why I am helping Global Art Project. May God help us in achieving peace, love and unity in this world." - Syed Imon Rizvi

Jyoti Thomas, ID, Australia Regional Coordinator
"I just love the whole idea of the GAP. Having participated in this wonderful project last year I am keen to promote it around my area of rural Victoria and get others to also enjoy this wonderful exchange of goodwill, creativity and promotion of peace. I am a practising artist myself and work as an art therapist with many different groups over the years. I think this project is wonderful and we so need this type of energy in our world, so would like to help out if I can."

 

Dolly Bolen, AB, Canada Regional Coordinator
"I would like to help spread the word about the Global Art Project. I enjoy all aspects of art and I believe all children (and people of all ages) should learn the joys of art! I believe that achieving peace by spreading the word through art is something everyone can do in their own way. We may not all agree on how peace can be achieved but we can all contribute in a positive way in our goal for world peace."

Syed Shujat Jafri, Pakistan Regional Coordinator
My heart weeps sometimes to see hunger, war, disease and other grave issues in this whole world.

His artifacts are in museums and private collections and his papers on metal works are published in books and magazines in and out of Iran. Mohammad has focused on peace in his art and studies since 2007. “I joined the GAP in 2012 for its forward-looking and practical method. I knew the idea of exchanging art pieces around the world would be amazing. And believe the idea of the Project Katherine developed, is developing kindness and human values around the globe, where our hands and hearts are involved to extend our compassion. Appreciating that, I will try to introduce the GAP to Iranian artists and also my contacts in other countries and try to pave the way for expanding it.”

 

Krystal Kiran Garib, BC, Canada Regional Coordinator
"Being able to be a part of the Global Art Project is an excellent opportunity to get in touch with other artists, of all disciplines, around the world. Art is an intellectual, emotional and physical process, and when someone is able to create something that is considered 'intangible' into something 'tangible' or physically present, that is a beautiful thing. To see this process of creation come from different people in different parts of the world, different walks of life, and with different ideas, perceptions and experiences of life, the world, and 'reality', we unite the individual beings on this giant entity called the earth, into one. I am very proud to be able to help spread the word, which in essence, brings people together in peace."

 

Frances Clem, CT, United States Regional Coordinator
"My favorite part of being an artist is teaching young artists from ages eight to eighteen from my home studio. They are an inspiration to me and my own art, which is mainly oil primitive portraits and watercolors. We can all make a difference in the world, sharing our gifts, reaching out in love through art. Peace is possible!"

Alissa Laughlin, NJ, United States Regional Coordinator
"I am so happy to connect with this organization and I look forward to getting involved. I am from Hopewell, New Jersey and went to college out in southern California. I studied studio art and psychology and am in the direction of getting my masters in art therapy. I have experience working with children with disabilities to express themselves using art instead of verbal communication. Art has given me an aesthetic view of the world by showing how internal attitudes and view points are contributing externally which means everyone else plays a role in a collective society. I would like to extend my passion and contribute to the Global Art Project for Peace by working with communities to express who we are in higher states of personal consciousness and promote unity-consciousness through peace and positive growth."

 

Douglas Striker, OH, United States Regional Coordinator
Douglas resides in Cincinnati, OH where he has participated in the GAP since 1996. "I love incorporating creativity into all aspects of my life, and expanding my awareness of the world. I haven’t had the chance to travel outside North America, but the GAP gives me the opportunity to connect with another part of the world in a way that is beyond comparison. Putting positive and creative energy out towards someone that you don't even know, and thinking that the same energy is coming towards you is a great feeling."

 

Carrie Eley-Durbin, Coordinator for Montessori Schools
"Montessori Education is based on peace, kindness, civility, and integrity. Maria Montessori was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize twice! She said 'Establishing a lasting peace is the work of education; all politics can do is keep us out of war.' And Ghandi, 'If we are to have real peace in this world, we must begin with the children.' After years in higher education, I found I was drawn to little children, who are, in their own essence, love, and who yearn for a peace they do not know. Hopefully we can have great Montessori School participation in the Global Art Project this year!"

 

Eleni Kotziamani, Cyprus Regional Coordinator
"I'm a teacher in a primary public school in Cyprus. I'm also involved in several youth initiatives which bring together youth from the two major communities of Cyprus (Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots), who have lived apart since they were born. The youth initiatives, organized and implemented by the Doves Olympic Movement, use Olympism, the blend of sports, cultural and educational activities to promote personal and social change. Being part of the Global Art Project is a stimulating experience which provides the youth of Cyprus the opportunity to interact and exchange artwork with people outside the small island of Cyprus"
