The Festival is really about bringing people together to celebrate the International Day of Peace and Ceasefire as a community. Creating awareness of the day and celebrating that global holiday is actually how Charleston Peace One Day started. But it is not just about the day. CP1D uses the day as a platform to highlight peace-building initiatives that are going on throughout the year in South Carolina. We hope to inspire our community to get involved with other people and organizations working to decrease violence in our cities.
As the festival continued to grow, we promoted local art, music, education, business, non-profits, sports, and more throughout the festival. In 2010, programming included a live music stage, "What A Day of Peace Means" Fine Art Exhibit, Kid's Global Village Peace-building education, Speak Peace interactive dialogue forum, Make a Commitment Photography Show and Activities, Business, Non-profit, and local food vendors, a College Campus Section, and More!
