Centro Arte Para La Paz
This common place challenges the community to practice many different activities such as painting, yoga, photography, or music. The people involved within this healing center do not support gangs or graffiti, actually they are strictly against these kinds of societies. Centro Arte para la Paz promotes peace and environmental awareness to all people throughout El Salvador.
The founder of this great foundation in Central America, peace activist, Sr. Peggy O'Neill, works to create a place to rebuild culture and peace using different types of art as the main focus. She has been working in El Salvador since 2006 and continues to work with social and cultural development throughout El Salvador.
This organization depicts a perfect example of an ethic of care. Centro Arte para la Paz cares for everyone, by welcoming in hundreds of people every week to relieve them from their traumatic memories from the civil war. They care tremendously for the connection of one person to another. The whole focus of this organization is to bring people with the same interests together.
