Several members of Tyler Together participated in planning and organizing Tyler’s Art of Peace Festival. This annual event, which began in 2011, continues to grow in popularity and is great way to emphasize our common desire for Peace within our Community, Nation, and World.
Here’s an excerpt from an article by Samantha Copus, A&E Editor for the UT Tyler Patriot Newspaper that explains a little more about the meaning of the Art Of Peace:
Parts of the world are consumed with hate, crime and war. This got a passionate group together with hopes to spread peace through fellowship, dialogue, music, poetry and art.
Art of Peace Tyler is a week-long festival that originators hope will transform the community into a place to reflect on peace. This will be done through various events such as a Day for Kids, a Peace Meal and a Peace Open Mic.
