“Greta and I met in Seattle as Peace Corps Volunteers being sent to Papua New Guinea in 2000. We both share a special sisterhood connection and we always spoke about working together in a format related to our love for peace and art. In late 2020, Josefa and I spoke about the possibility to do collaborative work together in Peace Activism through the Arts.”
-Heidi Majano, Executive Director of the Peaceful World Foundation

“I have been teaching art for 18 years.
I have taught all grade levels K-12 though
I currently teach middle and high school for the Gateway School District in Monroeville, PA. Annually, I also volunteer to teach art workshops with our local library to students in the surrounding area. Working on this project with Heidi has been exciting as we both had little knowledge on the origins of the peace symbol.”
-Greta Severson, Art Teacher on the topic: Peace Activism through the Arts
