The following programs reflect several possibilities:
Meet the Lion and Lamb
An initial visit to The Lion and Lamb provides an opportunity to consider the possibilities for peace and justice as reflected through art and literature. As a presentation or an informal conversation, a visit offers a glimpse of the mission and vision, resources and programs with time to browse the literature collection and enjoy visual art and sculptures in the center as well as in the Honda Outdoor Sculpture Garden.
I Choose kindness
A picture book will be selected to provide the foundation for a lesson with art and music to compliment the chosen theme. Topics include, but are not limited to the following: kindness and respect, justice and equality, cultural understanding, appreciating diversity, resolving conflicts without violence, bully prevention, empathy, new perspectives and more.
International students attending Bluffton University will share about their country and culture followed by time to respond to questions. This program is offered contingent on the availability of students and their schedules.
This multicultural session incorporates literature, music, art, languages, clothing to try on, food to taste and other fun props to present an opportunity for participants to experience different cultures.
Follow the Peace Arts Trail
A walking tour around campus includes many sculptures that reflect broad dimensions of peace as well as the need for peace.
