Peace Paper Project is an international organization of hand papermakers, art therapists, fine artists and social activists. Through community collaborations Peace Paper workshops are offered to help and advocate for healing populations. Since its inception, Peace Paper has established over 40 studios across the globe; Australia, India, Iran, Turkey, Ukraine, Poland, Germany, United Kingdom and as far west in the USA as Hawaii.
Peace Paper Project facilitators Drew Matott & Jana Schumacher will be at using a bike operated Hollander beater to engage Buffalo State students in an ongoing interactive papermaking demonstration, making paper from refugee clothing, military uniforms, underwear, politician suits, horse manure, and other pulps gathered from past international workshops.
Community members are invited to take part in the transformative process of papermaking during the scheduled activities. Participants will have the opportunity to make paper from their own clothing to contribute to the exhibit and ongoing activities.
