Painting for Peace

"If we don't teach our kids peace someone else will teach them violence" -- Colman McCarthy

A short film by Nina Constable. An ACTED and AptArt project with the support of the European Commission Humanitarian Aid Department and UNICEF.

ACTED is a non-governmental organization with headquarters in Paris, founded in 1993. Independent, private and not-for-profit, ACTED respects a strict political and religious impartiality and operates according to principles of non-discrimination and transparency.
AptART aims to empower marginalized children through art to express themselves as well as build awareness and promote prevention of issues affecting their lives. It is an organisation of artists, activists and educators engaging vulnerable children in art. Through workshops and murals youth are empowered with an outlet to express themselves, build awareness and promote prevention about issues affecting their lives.
Very inspiring.

Another short film by Messrs - The young street artists of Za'atari camp
