From Joan Wages

9/23 – Organizers with Peace Week Roanoke gathered around the fire circle at their local urban farm and expressed and drummed together for a culture of nonviolence and peace.

9/24 – Organizers also held a Peace Fest. In collaboration with their local performing arts education center and other community partners, they put on a performing arts and peace festival. They offered interactive, participatory activities, including: dances of universal peace, a weaving unity through diversity project, ask-me-anything, chalking for peace, hoop-weaving, and a photo booth with heroes of nonviolence.
