peace soldier provides a microphone for young American combat veterans to share their perspectives on the realities of war and the meaning of peace. the objective of the project is help ensure these young voices are heard loudly and considered frankly as we form our individual opinions and collective actions today and in the years to come.
peace soldier brings together a wide range of creative works developed from the words and images of combat veterans, and distributes these works broadly using a combination of online media and public spaces. the first module consists of a series of peace soldier photography/essay portraits, which will be unveiled publicly in September at 111 Minna Gallery in San Francisco and Art Storm Gallery in Houston, and subsequently placed at galleries, cafes and public venues across the U.S. the photography module will be followed by a street art module (using peace soldier quotes) and music module (sampling peace soldier voices).
peace soldier is the first phase of why not peace, an initiative developed by the üba FOUNDATION which combines the voices of those closest to war, the creative works of talented artists, and ubiquitous communication / distribution channels to catalyze a renewed public interest and engagement in peace and human security.
