Youth work veterans Mary Meadows and Julie Reiswig will coordinate the youth morning sessions. Hector Aristizábal — artist, human rights worker, therapist, and actor — will serve as a special resource leader with the youth program, using innovative theatrical techniques to teach conflict transcendence and life affirming group processes.
Long-time children’s leader Elaine Pennington will once again coordinate the morning program for children, drawing on Hector Aristizábal, Lawrence Martin, and various other conference leaders to share their skills of art, drama, story-telling, music, conflict transformation and more to help our children develop as peacemakers.
After-hours events will include plays, concerts and open mic events in which all attendees are invited to share their talents. Hector Aristizábal will present two one-man plays: “Nightwind” and “IN-TE-A-RRO-R-GATOR.”
