Community Engagement

The Peace Center’s Community Engagement initiatives seek to tell stories, amplify voices, educate and inspire through the arts. Our aim in community engagement is to create a more inclusive Peace Center by partnering with organizations to increase accessibility to programming, to represent the vast diversity of our community, and to be a welcoming space for all to experience performing arts.
