Has anyone used art as a form of activism before, if so, how was your experience?

Sara, this is an awesome question -- I can think of a few of our Peace First Fellows who use art, in one form or another, to create change! Here's one story:

Before joining Peace First, I taught tolerance and peacemaking to young children, and often found that drawing was a great way to get them engaged -- sometimes art allows us to express things we may not have the comfort or ability to put into words, and it's a great way to help people see an issue from a different perspective. So thinking about this question is super important!
