Celebration of Peace

Peace Fest

The Academy and its parent organization CREC are both institutions of social justice. On a daily basis, the Academy’s young artists refine their craft and use their voices for the expression of social justice through their art form.

On May 17, the Academy hosted a day of celebration and reflection on social justice issues. The day was titled “No Justice, No Peace Festival.” The outdoor event spanned the Learning Corridor campus green and featured a wide range of activities, food trucks, and live music performances presented by Academy music majors. Some of the activities featured were mural and protest poster making stations. There was a table that hosted a table of local activists. A truck from the Hartford Public Library featured books that have been banned in various places. Other activities were Zuma, yoga, and stage combat. Faculty and students were encouraged to “wear their voice” by choosing outfits that spoke of issues close to them. The day was enjoyed by all.
