Description:

For two millennia, humankind has created paper by hand. Whatever the intention behind the paper, be it to represent wealth, to carry spirituality, or to convey messages, every fiber that goes into the making of paper has a story to tell. Peace Paper Project, a collaboration between artists Drew Mattot and Margaret Mahan, works to empower healing arts communities around the world by introducing collaborative art processes that foster positive forward thinking, enhanced communication, and peaceful reconciliation. Through hand papermaking, writing, book and printmaking activities, they work with local communities to transform significant materials into works of art that broadcast personal stories, mutual understanding and healing.




Learn about this powerful and transformative project as Drew Mattot and Margaret Mahan discuss their work, their experiences and the connections between creativity and healing. Sponsored by the Honors College, the School of Art and Design, the Student Service Fee Committee and the Common Experience, this event is free and open to the public.
