PEACE INITIATIVE


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

(JULY 20, 2012) Hamptons World Peace Initiative is pleased to announce the program line up for August 3-5th 2012, at Southampton Inn, in Southampton New York. The initiative consists of Artisan Festival International with its World Cinema Festival, and Renaissance Art Fair branches. The evening festivities will comprise of fashion fused with music in addition to the film and fine art.  "Bridging the gap of cultural diversity is imperative to creating social change in an environment where one individual can make a significant impact. We all have the gift to manifest, create and aid in peace relations. By bringing individuals together from all walks of life, to focus on enjoying culture through  an appreciation of the arts, we can create the needed dialogue for change and cross cultural acceptance. Some of the films showcased are not necessarily a promotion of peace: thus the goal is to congregate and explore dialogue. Where there is conflict we must resolve, and agree to differ,” stated multi-media talent Princess Angelique Monét, AFI World Peace Initiative founder and Executive Director.
