Artists have always been at the forefront of social, economic, and political change and the recent event brought forward six individuals who want to change the world through their art.

Inspired by the legacy of Frank Buchman, founder of Initiatives of Change, in the 1960s young people from all walks of life used to travel together across the world, building peace through their love of sharing music, theatre, and personal storytelling. Since that time, the arts – in all its forms – have played a significant role in how IofC has communicated the importance of sharing a person’s lived experience and its link to creating peace between people and cultures.

The recent ‘All Rejoice!’ event sought to reintroduce this innovative approach to peacebuilding, as well as reframe the concept of community, from the perspective of ‘artists as advocates’. Six artists contributed to the event, showcasing their passion for change and inspiring all who attended to ‘be the change you wish to see in the world.’
