Tucked away in a corner of the Bluffton University campus is an amazing place. It’s a quiet place for reflection; a cool, shaded place to relax from the heat of the day; a resource place for teachers; a learning place for students.
The Lion and Lamb Peace Arts Center was founded in in 1987 to provide a resource for children to gain skills necessary for developing a vision of peace. The center is a library with children’s books on peace, multiculturalism, social issues and more; teacher resources; art work to promote discussion and the Honda Outdoor Peace Sculpture Garden.
A two-day conference for students in grades 3-7, Celebration of Peace: Beyond Borders, will be held Oct. 23-24, 2009. Through music, storytelling, drama, art, drumming, games, multicultural interaction and more, students will recognize and learn to see beyond the “borders” created by society to separate people.
