Cities of Peace seeks to amplify the struggles of young people in Chicago and Phnom Penh as they organize to transform harm and create community healing. Using their own site-specific histories as a jumping off point, the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the Peace Institute of Cambodia will form Community Peace Councils which will interrogate the roots of structural and relational violence and practice transformative justice. They will produce a documentary film, develop exhibitions, and participate in an international exchange which will culminate in a Community Peacebuilding Summit in Chicago in the summer of 2015.

CHICAGO ART DEPARTMENT - LEARNING IS A LIFESTYLE: ART ACTIVATING CONNECTED LEARNING IN CHICAGO This public action project engages the creative community to explore how art can activate learning throughout the city; not as something you do but as something you live.  The title is inspired by the late Brother Mike Hawkins, who promoted the idea of lifelong learning in his work as an artist, poet, and educator.  “Learning is a Lifestyle” imagines learning as curiosity, expression, beauty, identity and culture.  These things are often intangible and difficult to measure, yet they are critical to a life of learning.
