PIANOS FOR PEACE ARTIST APPLICATION
Pianos for Peace is an annual festival and one of the largest community art display initiative in Atlanta, using colorful pianos for anyone and everyone to play. After the two‐week outdoor festival, we donate the painted pianos to nursing homes, local schools, community centers, healthcare facilities, and other organizations in need. Local artists and musicians then volunteer in one of our yearlong programs serving under‐resourced communities in Atlanta.
Join our team of Ambassadors for Peace and be part of the largest community art display initiative in Atlanta. There is no entry fee and we welcome artists at all stages of their careers—including emerging artists, students and volunteers.
