History teacher Sierra Corriveau, English teacher Elizabeth Tidrick, and the 10th-grade students at Monte del Sol Charter School invite you to give peace a chance when they unveil The Peace Museum Project on Friday, April 19. It’s the culmination of a yearlong curriculum in which students studied the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, learned about boy soldiers in Sierra Leone, the Cambodian genocide under the Khmer Rouge, PTSD in the military, violence against the LGBTQ community, and other historic and contemporary issues and conflicts around the world. They took what they learned and used it as the basis for a series of artworks that address these issues and that also explore the ways to peace. The grand opening takes place at the Lannan Meeting House (309 Read St.) at 5 p.m. and is free to the public. The Peace Museum Project is also open from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 20.
