Korea Peace Bridge
Korea Peace Bridge is a collaborative video dialogue featuring some members of the Korea Peace Now! grassroots movement. The project began in 2020, a year in which our advocacy faced new challenges amid the coronavirus pandemic and physical distancing.
In an effort to reconnect the community, we invited members to reflect on the 70th anniversary of the Korean War with other peace advocates. Using a method known as “Question Bridge,” inspired by the artist Chris Johnson, we facilitated an anonymous question-answer exchange between participants across age, place, and identity.
You can watch the different exchanges by navigating the thematic categories below. Or watch all the videos via the embedded YouTube video below.
