Last updated: January 2018

The International Committee of Artists for Peace (ICAP) is an organization founded by visionary artists such as Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Patrick Duffy, Pascual and Angela Olivera, and their mentor, Dr. Daisaku Ikeda, to create a culture of peace and develop future peacemakers through the trans-formative power of the arts.

Since 2002, ICAP has sponsored concerts, iChoose musicals, exhibits, dialogues and peace-building workshops to instill the ideals of humanism and nonviolence in today’s youth. Through autumn 2008, ICAP has presented peace concerts, conducted peace-building workshops, created and sponsored exhibitions and honored extraordinary individuals on three continents.

It is our cherished goal to continue expanding our circles of peace and friendship through culture and the arts around the globe. We do this through collaborative efforts in support of the United Nations Declaration and Program of Action toward a Culture of Peace.
