It's a unique traveling museum that teaches peacemaking skills to children, Kindergarten through Fifth grade. To do this, it utilizes exciting, hands-on interactive exhibits which include computer programs, puppetry, giant puzzles, and lots more. These exhibits and experiences can normally be brought to your location and set up inside your facility, so the greatest number of children can participate. It takes about 2000 square feet to set up the entire presentation. The Peace Mobile is not a self contained vehicle which many think are similar to the "Bookmobiles". It's called "mobile" because it travels to your site, but must be unpacked and set up on location. The Atlanta Peace Mobile has traveled great distances to share this program with many children and their families.
WHAT IS THE ALANTA PEACE MOBILE?
The catalyst for creating the Atlanta Peace Mobile started after a group from Georgia visited the Children's Peace Pavilion, which is a children's interactive museum that is permanently located in Independence, Missouri, USA. During their visit in the fall of 1994 they fell in love with the concept of teaching peace to children and their families. After getting permission from the Children's Peace Pavilion to utilize their ideas and exhibit concepts, the Atlanta Peace Mobile was born. The group, along with friends and neighbors designed and built portable exhibits and gave their first public presentation September 1996 in Ashville, NC. The Atlanta Peace Mobile operates independently. Foundational to the Peace Mobile are the four basic concepts of peace developed from the Children's Peace Pavilion: Peace for Me, Peace for Us, Peace for Everyone, and Peace for the Planet.
The Atlanta Peace Mobile has over 30 exhibits (learning centers) for children to enjoy during a "Site Visit". The Peace Mobile can be scheduled to visit schools, churches, synagogues, clubs, camps, organizations, or other indoor and some outdoor events.
There are other programs and resources available for Parents and Teachers as well as other organizations interested in continuing to develop children's peacemaking skills. These are especially valuable after a visit has been made from a peacemobile. The Atlanta Peace Mobile shares about these programs as it travels.
