What is ICAP?

The International Committee of Artists for Peace (ICAP) is an organization founded by visionary artists such as Herbie Hancock, M Lavin, Wayne Shorter, Patrick Duffy, Pascual and Angela Olivera to create a culture of peace and develop future peacemakers through the transformative 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. It is our cherished goal to expand our circles of friendship and collaborative efforts in support of the United Nations Declaration and Program of Action toward a Culture of Peace.
