The mission of the Global Art Project (GAP) is to spread world peace by promoting tolerance and non-violence through art. The Project expresses the idea: We Are All One. People of all ages and from all around the world who choose to participate each create a work of art expressing their vision of global unity. The art is displayed locally in each participant's community. Global Art Project then organizes an international exchange by matching participants group-to-group and individual-to-individual.
The exchange occurs April 23-30 biennially, resulting in thousands of people sending messages of Peace and unity around the globe at one time--visions of unity simultaneously encircling the earth. The art is sent as a gift of global friendship and exhibited in the receiving community.
Participants may send slides and documentation of the art created and of the people who came together to create the art to the GAP Art Bank. Global Art Project exhibitions, books, slide presentations, and this Web site give people an opportunity to experience visions of Peace and unity created by individuals from diverse cultures around the world.
Another element of the Project Let's All Join Hands was added in 98. People are invited to send a paper outline of their hand with their name, country, and wish for global peace, love and friendship on it to the Global Art Project. The hands may be created and sent to GAP at any time. Volunteers in Tucson string the hands together as a visual expression of the thousands of people who join their energy together to create Peace. The paper hands are exhibited as a source of inspiration and a book of paper hands The Handbook for Peace is planned for publication.
