About the Project

"24 Peaces is an artist's journey to invite people to ask the question "What is peace?" and to powerfully connect them with their own ability to create peace such that they are inspired to action." With the purpose of igniting our own individual ability to create peace, the artist GENE (Gene Jimenez) is conducting a series of twenty-four conversations with both preeminent peacemakers and a cross section of “every-day people” from diverse backgrounds and cultures.  Through questions such as, “What is peace?” and “What does peace mean to you?” the artist seeks to reveal that the concept of peace can mean many different things and each of us has the capacity and responsibility to nurture and affect it.  Additionally, GENE is creating twenty-four paintings based on the energy and content of these conversations. His energetic and vivid painting style intends to portray the creative possibilities for each person to use our world as a canvas to create peace. The 24 Peaces project is about creating a global conversation of peace. This is not the only world peace project out there, but we feel it is a very important step in demonstrating to the world what can be created with the energy of peace when we share with one another what our individual definition of it really is.


All proceeds are to be distributed back to the participating 24 peacemakers charities and organizations, around the world. The people we are talking to all are affiliated with charities and groups in need. As a registered 501c3 non-profit organization, 24 Peaces has committed all proceeds from this project to be distributed to these organizations. When you support 24 Peaces, you are supporting 24 charities and organizations, around the world.
