“Building Unity Through Movement” Workshop offered by the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force

SANDPOINT, IDAHO- On August 10th, as part of the Bonner County Human Rights Task Force conference “Making a Difference: Empowering Individuals to Build Inclusive Communities,” Thomas Warfield will be offering his powerful workshop.  Entitled “Building Unity Through Movement” this workshop focuses on giving participants the opportunity to experience unity building through celebrating their own creativity.  The conference is being held at Schweitzer Mountain Resort and there are still a few spaces available for this workshop.

     Mr. Warfield is the artistic director of PeaceArt International; a global outreach project dedicated to using creative human experience to further world peace.  PeaceArt International provides programs designed to facilitate greater human understanding and build community through individual and collective creativity.  These programs have been presented in schools, hospitals, community centers, homeless shelters, and correctional facilities and have served the elderly, mentally and physically disabled, AIDS/cancer patients, blind and deaf children and many others worldwide.

     Mr. Warfield is a professional dancer, published poet, actor, singer, pianist, choreographer, and a music and theater director—all skills he shares in his workshop.  He has taught extensively throughout the U.S. on subjects ranging from ballet, modern and African-based dance, choreography, voice, drama, and poetry.  He participated in the Artist-in-Residence program in the Bonner County public schools to great acclaim by students, parents, and faculty.

    His commitment to human dignity and creativity is evidenced by his membership in the Metropolitan Opera Guild, Dance Critics Association, International Dance and the Child, the Earth Society Foundation, the National Peace Association, Association of American Cultures, the Human Rights Campaign Fund, Amnesty International, and Greenpeace.  In 2000 he was awarded the Volunteer Award from the United Nations Association.

     The Bonner County Human Rights Task Force is honored to be able to host this talented activist and creative thinker as a major component of the Making a Difference Conference.  Individuals will be able to participate in his workshop for $15 between 1 PM and 5 PM on August 10th at Schweitzer Mountain Resort.  For additional information check their website at www.bchrtf.org.
