Creativity for Peace’s leadership program begins with a three-week summer intensive (camp) in the United States and continues in Israel/Palestine with six weekend seminars over a two-year period.
Registration is open for the 2020 summer session. Applications will be accepted through November 30, 2019.
The 2020 camp will take place 16 July – 6 August (plus travel). Young women interested in applying for the 2020 camp may do so now.
Participation is open to young women, ages 15-17, from Israel and Palestine. Please read the instructions carefully and submit all required materials in English. For more information contact Noa Ma'ayan, Program Coordinator in Israel, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Camp brings young women from Israel and Palestine to a beautiful and peaceful setting, where communication and leadership are supported. Participants will have daily opportunities for dialogue, art-making, lots of fun, and the beginning of new friendships. Our rural location, high in the Sangre de Cristo mountains of northern New Mexico, is near the state capital of Santa Fe, a small city known for its Native American and Spanish heritage, clear blue skies and soaring landscapes, as well as art, architecture, and cuisine. While activities are varied, there is a special emphasis on art. Your artmaking projects may include drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, and much more. We invite you to join us for an exceptional three weeks of exploration and discovery.
Within a month of returning home, you will again meet with the 15 other participants from your summer session to renew friendships, take part in dialogue, and support each other. This will be the first of six weekend seminars where you will deepen your understanding of the conflict, learn skills essential to becoming an effective leader, gain confidence and spend time with other young women who share a vision of building a future based on compassion and peace.
