A Peace of My Mind is a multimedia arts project, created by award-winning photographer John Noltner, that uses portraits and personal stories to bridge divides and encourage dialogue around important issues.
Frustrated with an increasingly polarized world, Noltner drove 40,000 miles across the country asking people the simple question, “What does peace mean to you?”
Through exhibits, workshops, lectures and onsite studios, A Peace of My Mind leads transformative experiences that help a polarized world rediscover the common humanity that connects us.
A gifted storyteller, Noltner has worked on four continents, gathering stories of human courage, grace, and resilience. He has produced projects for national magazines, Fortune 500 companies, and non-profit organizations. A Peace of My Mind reflects his belief that art and storytelling can help individuals, organizations and communities articulate their deepest values and encourage action toward building social capital and community connections.
