Peace Drum Project News - Spring 2010

Celebrating Ten Years of Inter-generational Arts

The Peace Drum Project is CAI's after-school youth leadership program that immerses Boston teens in performing and visual arts, and brings them together with elders in the community to learn from their lives and experiences. Each year, our teens interview a new group of elders, listen to their stories, and create a personalized Peace Drum for each one, reflecting a life well-lived. This year, almost all of the elders working with the teens are professional artists - thus deepening the young people's experience of art as a life-time of expression!

Artists at work

The artists participating this year include: Khalid Kodi (conceptual artist & painter), Curtis Jones (musician & storyteller), Ginny O'Neill and Tom Menihan (painters), Hakim Raquib (photographer), Gary A. Rickson (painter & musician), Susan Thompson (textile artist), Bob Walthol (poet), Anthony Williams (choreographer), and Barbara Ward Armstrong (musician & visual artist). Paul Medling, a retired minister living at Farnsworth House, is also an elder participant. The teens are learning so much from the elders stories about overcoming barriers, celebrating life's joys, their youthful adventures, family hardships, artistic inspiration, and how they gather strength from within themselves.
Youth with Artist Elders

End-of-Year Celebration!

Please join us for our end-of-year Exhibit, Reception & Awards Ceremony
See our drums. Hear our stories.
Meet the participants and help us celebrate ten years of exciting arts programming.
Tuesday, June 1
5:00-7:00 PM
at Julia Martin House,
90 Bickford Street in Jamaica Plain.
For more information or to volunteer to help, contact Susan Porter at 617-524-6378.

Peace Drum Winners & Special Thanks

Thanks to all of you who supported the Peace Drum fall '09 appeal. Each person who donated was entered into a drawing to receive their very own peace drum! The five lucky winners for this year are: Franca DeVito of Quincy, Michael Prince of Waltham, Gary Rickson of Roxbury, Jeri Robinson of Dorchester, & Tiffany Candlish of Quebec, Canada.

A thousand thanks to Liz Elia for her brilliant 30-day yoga challenge that raised over $1000 for the Peace Drum! As a CAI Board member, Liz has inspired our staff and others to think about new creative ways of raising funds for the Peace Drum Project. If you have any great ideas of your own, we are all ears!

Very special thanks to The Janey Fund, and to the many individual contributors who made the project possible this year!

Thank you, also, to all of the fabulous Interns who helped with the Peace Drum and other projects this year, especially Prema Bangera, Emily Cobb, Susanna Derby, Courtney Williams, and Chris Watson for their fantastic support, ideas, and presence.

Your contribution to support The Peace Drum Project will ensure that we can continue to provide this one-of-a-kind experience to help at-risk youth transform their lives through the arts and their connection with elders in the community.
Contributions may be sent to CAI, 311 Forest Hills St., Boston, MA 02130-3605 or go to

In her own voice:
" When I graduated a few days ago, I was thinking about the people who made that step possible, and of course, the first thing I thought of was The Peace Drum. So this is not just to reflect my gratitude for receiving the Charles Holley Memorial Scholarship. It's for the overall inspiration you have given me! There was never a time that I needed help, or even just a burst of happiness, that you weren't there for me. So thank you for believing my wildest dreams might be possible!" Farah Jeune ('09 Graduate)

Elder Banner Project
The community room at Julia Martin House has been buzzing with activity on Mondays in March and April. Some elders who participated in the project in previous years are now creating a banner depicting their own stories with artist Susan Thompson! This beautiful banner will be on exhibit at our end of year awards to celebrate their accomplishment. Elder artists include Julia Martin, Gladys Facey, Bernell Stuart, and Joy Fisher, all of Jamaica Plain.

The MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology operates as a critical studies and production based laboratory, connecting the arts with an advanced technological community. ACT faculty, fellows and students engage in advanced visual studies and research by implementing both an experimental and systematic approach to creative production and transdisciplinary collaboration. As an academic and research unit, the ACT Program emphasizes both knowledge production and knowledge dissemination. In the tradition of artist and educator Gyorgy Kepes, the founder of MIT’s Center for Advanced Visual Studies and an advocate of “art on a civic scale,” ACT envisions artistic leadership initiating change, providing a critically transformative view of the world with the civic responsibility to enrich cultural, discourse.

I would like to invite you to First Friday Open Studios this Friday, May. 7th, from 5-9 pm., at 450 Harrison Ave., Studio 227, Boston, MA. Due to a large house renovation, I have not been open for First Fridays for a year; I am so happy to be back, and look forward to seeing you! I will also be open for the SOWA Art Walk, May 15-16, from 11am-6pm. I have completely re-done my studio, have much more display space with new lighting and many new framed prints; I hope you'll come and see them.

Also, beginning this month, I will be hosting a guest artist each month. Many of these artists will be clients for whom I make limited edition and/or photo prints, so you'll get a chance to see that aspect of my work. This month, I am very pleased to be hosting a visiting painter from Uruguay, Jose Trujillo.

José Trujillo was born in Maldonado, Uruguay in 1960, where he still paints and resides. In his youth, he studied drawing and painting with Manolo Lima. Trujillo is a career artist who has devoted his life to his craft. The fundamental focus of his work at first glance appears to stream towards naturalism and realism, but his approach is far more complex; he can not be restrictively labeled by the standard definitions of these styles. Trujillo does not seek traditional reality, rather choosing to transform his observations by imposing his artistic language. By remaining loyal to himself and ignoring trends, Trujillo upholds the integrity of his art. He has exhibited at galleries, museums, and cultural centers worldwide. José Trujillo can be contacted at:
