Children’s Peace Theatre

Children’s Peace Theatre uses the arts and artistic creativity as critical tools for personal and social transformation. Our mandate is to co-create a culture of peace using an arts based, intergenerational and holistic approach that cultivates ecological, social and spiritual resilience with the individual and the community. We centre the voices of racialized communities and leverage our power in the arts sector to co-create imaginative solutions for equitable and fair futures for all.

Children’s Peace Theatre is a catalyst for ideas, discussions and actions that make the arts and relationship to the land more central and meaningful to people’s lives, in order to promote healthier young people, more vibrant democracies and equitable societies. ​It is our commitment to provide a space where young people can create and learn from artists, Elders and the land.

We primarily work in Taylor Massey Park. Our annual Parade also hosts a picnic in another location in the Taylor Creek system. We have run workshops in Dentonia and hope to do more work in other parks as funding permits.
