The Problem

Peace, Love & Hope, is a unique anti-bullying project that spreads a global message by getting children aged 5 to 15 involved in exchange through art. Founded in 2007 by a Montreal-based artist and art educator, Avy Loftus, Peace Love & Hope has so far reached more than 250,000 children. It will continue until it reaches at least 1 million kids around the globe with a hope to raise awareness and visibility for the anti-bullying cause at schools and communities.

Our Plan

Peace, Love & Hope promotes anti-bullying through art workshops, public presentations, personal story exchange, outreach and exhibitions. Children are invited to participate in batik workshops, where they are taught the techniques and have the opportunity to create individual pieces on the theme of peace, love and hope. The pieces are then assembled into large-scale quilts which Avy tours and exhibits at museums, cultural centres, schools and international children’s festivals, raising awareness and visibility for the anti-bullying cause.
