IRC's PeaceMaking Programs are offered at the elementary, intermediate, secondary, undergraduate, graduate and professional levels in a broad range of educational settings in New York City and Tri-State Area.
 
 
Peace QuiltMaking Workshop 

Workshop participants collaboratively design their own Peace Story Quilt which may be permanently exhibited at the host institution or event (conference, school, university, organization, gallery, museum, etc.).  IRC's Peace QuiltMaking Workshops are conducted in collaboration with professional arts educator, Patricia Maunder, Director of Stories Through Art.

IRC's Peace QuiltMaking Workshops are also conducted regionally for educational professionals working with ethnically diverse student populations in increasingly multicultural classrooms.  Here's a peace quilt designed and constructed by art teachers in New York City.
