Saturday, April 30th & Sunday, May 1st: The Science of Peace

The Science of Peace
St. Cecilia’s Convent (21 Monitor St., Brooklyn)
See schedule below
Free

The Science of Peace: a collection of our perceptions is a collaborative project birthed from the desire to create new imagery and understanding around what peace is, what it isn’t, and what it could be from a subjective point of reference by creating an environment open to experimenting with the ideal.

The beautiful St. Cecilia’s will be holding these projections of peace
