On June 5, 2011, MetaFour Productions launched the BEYOND WALLS Photo & Video Project at the Create Peace Art Festival in Pasadena, CA. MetaFour partnered with the Western Justice Center for the Create Peace Art Festival which showcased creative works for students grades 1-12 and encouraged students to join the online community for youth--BeyondWallsOnline.org.
The BEYOND WALLS Photo and Video Project captured personal thoughts and expression, photographs, and video testimonies responding to the prompt: What do we have to get BEYOND?
The first participants posted responses that included moving "Beyond prejudice," "Beyond judgement," "Beyond convention," even "Beyond cool!" We've posted these for viewing on the BEYOND WALLS Photo and Video Project Facebook page.
Now it's your turn. Participate in the worldwide BEYOND WALLS Photo and Video Project!
What do we have to get BEYOND?

Spread the word to your networks.
Start to change the world.
Start to move....BEYOND WALLS!
The Western Justice Center and MetaFour Productions are calling for student entries for the Create Peace Art Festival 2011 on June 5, 2011. The submission deadline has been extended to Tuesday, May 31, 2011.
The Create Peace Art Festival 2011 features visual art contributions from youth that reflect the theme: Create Peace. Last year we received about 60 contributions and were honored that the Mayor of Pasadena served as the emcee for the event.
MetaFour Productions is set to conduct sessions at schools or after-school programs where we will guide students in how to create peace-themed art. We are also looking for peace-related submissions produced by students independent of the MetaFour classes. We’ll pick up and return any pieces that you would like to enter. The first 20 teachers who submit a minimum of five entries will receive an Art for Peace Toolkit consisting of art materials and art lessons that are related to conflict resolution. The Create Peace Art Festival will be held at the Western Justice Center, 55 S. Grand Ave, Pasadena 91105 on Sunday, June 5, 2011 from 2:00 - 5:00. Please plan to join us for this meaningful celebration of youth exploring the creation of peace through art.
All are welcome!
