Shop and Build Community in Middletown

Artists For World Peace’s (AFWP) annual Market Place will be held at deKoven House in Middletown on December 9 from 11am to 4pm. Handcrafted gift items from Tanzania, Kenya and Nepal will be available, including baskets,

clothing, fabric and slippers. There will also be a pop-up art gallery of hundreds of original 6-square-inch painted canvases donated to AFWP by artists from around the country.

 

In addition, the event will include the raffle of a one-of-a-kind quilt made by the Peace Quilters Project in Tanzania. There will be live on-site painting with the finished paintings being offered at a later date. The day will culminate in an open drum circle led by members of the Eastern Pequot Nation from North Stonington. The event is free and open to the public with plenty of parking behind the building.

Artists for World Peace is a community of artists and activists that promote peace by feeding, housing, educating and providing healthcare to those in need, thereby lifting communities to a place of hope throughout the world.
