Voices Education Project is a global humanitarian organization and pedagogical institute that works toward a more peaceful world through promoting dialogue and the arts. Voices features personal stories that help to create a more humane narrative on the planet. Around the world, in neighborhoods and schoolyards, cities and countries, we can lay the basis for a more hopeful world by creating a new type of conversation in which all voices can be heard, and all points of view included, without engendering fear, hatred, or anger. Difference can lead to dialogue and growth rather than violence. Voices Education Project, we provide films, curricula, books, photo exhibits, web-based self-publishing and information resources, hands-on training for teachers – and a methodology of conflict resolution – that will help young people understand the roots of conflict, confront the pain and fear at the heart of conflict, and help to rebuild healthy human communities. Voices Education Project produced the feature length film Voices in Wartime, a documentary that uses poetry to explore the trauma of war. Voices also produced the Voices in Wartime Anthology which brings poetic voice to conflict and war and gives voice to witnessing war for a wider audience.
