Dialogue for Peace

Dialogue for Peace Outreach is an education program of the Peace On Earth Film Festival, which moves in accord with the Festival’s mission – to use film to challenge attitudes and beliefs that perpetuate discord and to plant seeds for creating a socially just, non-violent and eco-balanced world.

Dialogue for Peace Outreach:

  • Brings to light the harmful effects of intolerance and aggression and presents a diverse array of ideas and perspectives on tolerance and peace, as well as models of courage for positive change.
  • Fosters a broadening understanding of violence to encompass bullying, use of discriminatory language, and damage to the natural environment.
  • An in-school education outreach program, sustains the high standards set by the Student Voices for Peace, an in-house program presented each year in the Chicago Cultural Centers’ Claudia Cassidy Theater, at the annual Peace On Earth Film Festival.
  • And the SVP have served over 7,000 students of 32 different schools throughout Cook County.
