Our history
founded in 2010, the center is the vision of Carol A. Swainson and Stevens Jay Carter, a vision where peace

Verbal  testimonials
Sometimes that dream deferred is fulfilled and on Saturday, I saw one of mine realized. Since 10th grade, I’ve wanted to pick up my axe and do a gig with a group of musicians. Only problem is, I play no, absolutely no instrument. Then a light bulb went on and recently I realized my words/my poetry are my axe. I was invited and encouraged by visual artist Stevens Carter and educator Carol Swainson to perform my spoken word jazz suite at the International Peace and Art Center which they co-direct. Carol and Stevens were captivated by a tribute I wrote to Alice Coltrane that aired on public radio in 2007.
