We often incorporate reconciliation and bridge building themes in our work and strive to connect the dots between who we all are, what we may feel and believe, and what is produced. We are committed to bringing better understanding and deeper connection between people and cultures around the world through the creative arts and media. To this end we cross borders both physical and metaphoric to experience, express and communicate the beauty, heart, suffering, and creativity that binds us all together. Personal Statement 'I am dedicated to creating change through recognition of our common humanity, by including the 'other' and listening compassionately to those we disagree with. Diversity is humanity's beauty and strength, and provides the creative foundation for solving the challenges we face, and finding the connection we all crave. There is no 'us and them, there is only 'us' Peter Hwosch.
