KEYS TO PEACE
– we are creating a more compassionate, peaceable and sustainable Florida Keys community through education, collaboration
We aspire to create 40+ Community Peace Parks throughout the Keys – unique places of reflection
for locals and visitors. Parks will enhance awareness of a community’s commitment to peace and a healthy environment.
We believe that spending time at a CommunityPeacePark nourishes the soul, instills a mindfull
understanding of peace and at home and throughout the world.
Our vision entails that each park will feature a
peace bell made from a recycled dive tank, an identification plaque ( “ Community Peace Park – We are ALL the
Keys To Peace” ) and seating area. Keys To Peace will provide host sites with a bell primed and ready for custom artwork.
Mounting of the bells and installation of additional enhancements (sculpture, wind chimes, peace poles, labyrinths, water
features, etc.) will vary by location.
Dedication ceremonies for each CommunityPeacePark will be coordinated between host site and Keys To
CREATING PEACE BELLS
The Peace Bell project came
about through connections with people willing to donate old diving bells. Artists in the community painted the
bells. Hanging at various peace parks, the Peace Bells create a lovely sound and are very beautiful. A catalog
was developed with all of the different designs. Below are a few of the Peace Bells created in the last six months.
Some of the bells have been sold and are hanging in gardens around the country. We are extremely pleased to present
this project as it represents a collaborative effort by many individuals in the Keys Community coming together to realize
the vision of Peace in our lives and around the world. Thanks for your support of this project.
