The Peace Exchange is Back from South Africa!

By FSM Communications

Free Spirit PRO traveled to South Africa this summer with six Chicago students in The Peace Exchange. The crew was on a journey to study how people across the world practice peace in their communities. Free Spirit PRO documented the trip as Peace Builders visited the South Western Township, Nelson Mandela’s house, Bloemfontein, Swaziland and partnered with the Imagine School. The crew and the students learned about the history of South Africa and its current state of social issues, including the nation's living conditions, education system, and crime.

During the two and a half week trip, FSM's Free Spirit PRO crew conducted interviews with Peace Builders and locals. Now back in the States, Free Spirit PRO is producing a documentary about the trip and the work Peace Builders are doing in Chicago. This will be the third in a series of three short films Free Spirit PRO has produced about The Peace Exchange and its summer peace­building trips.
