Our mission is to bring divided communities together through collaborative community artwork inspired by Nature, healing heartbreak and laying the foundation for success in meeting community challenges.
The vision of the Unity Through Creativity Foundation is a world that is compassionate, connected, and creative. We bring these three qualities into everything we do in order to establish the foundations for understanding and lasting peace, locally and throughout the world. Just as literacy is considered a birthright, we view peace literacy as a birthright.
We implement our vision through collaborative murals and other collaborative works of art, teaching peace-building skills to youth, adults, and elders. Through shared creative experiences, heart to heart conversations occur on many levels, both spoken and unspoken. The fruit of every project we undertake is a community decision to take innovative actions that transform problems into opportunities and stalemates into success.
We respectfully acknowledge that the Unity Through Creativity Foundation headquarters in Novato, California is located on the unceded traditional land of the Coastal Miwok people. We are grateful for their stewardship of this land, to which we are visitors. We humbly strive to be good ancestors, to listen to indigenous voices, and to be in the life-long pursuit to un-colonize our thinking, so that the gifts of all living beings, and the earth that supports us, may flourish.
