Healing war through children's art..Speak Peace: American Voices Respond to Vietnamese Children's Paintings, the Vietnamese Children's Art Exhibit debuts in NE Ohio at the Kelvin Smith Library as part of the October 2010 International Peace and War Summit at Case Western Reserve University.
Vietnamese children's paintings of peace and war collected by the War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City are partnered with poetry by Americans from all ages and walks of life. This collaborative, international art project fosters creative dialog and cross-cultural communication that began with research born out of the emerging field of trauma studies and the healing powers of creative expression & community sharing.

The exhibit is sponsored by the National Peace Academy, Writers in the Schools Alliance, England's National Association for Writers in Education, Kent State University Honors College, and the Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence at Case Western Reserve University.
