COMING SOON: ARTS AND MEDIA CREATE PEACE – Our 2nd Initiative
Focus: the entertainment and mass media: powerful communicators that not only dispense information world wide, but stir, focus and shape emotion, and motivate to action. They influence decision-makers and events at home and across the globe.
Replace violent, negative, demeaning words and images with those that acknowledge and reinforce a sense of common humanity and the universal human capacity for generosity, mutual assistance, and respect for life.
- Children’s toys, storybooks, textbooks, TV and movies
- Video games
- Popular music of all genres.
- Television and entertainment shows
- Televised and print news
- Social networks
- Movies for theatrical and video release
The program foresees:
a. Providing organization and structure to promote coalitions within the media, the arts and entertainment industries that are committed to replacing their gratuitous and excessive violent imagery and content.
b. Inviting participation of leaders in education, finance and business, government, religious organizations, and the law to contribute their experience and influence to transforming the quality of media exposure that has been proven detrimental to a civil society.
