Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial, together with several partners, launched Paths to Peace: War of 1812 Arts Legacy Project on Thursday, October 27, 2011 at Put-in-Bay, OH, USA. The project is part of the park's commemorative activities for the Bicentennial of the War of 1812 and is an international education and art program targeting middle school students from Canada and the United States.
Paths to Peace interprets the war and the long-lasting peace between nations that were once at war -Canada/Britain, First Nations/American Indians and the United States - from multiple perspectives through the cultural arts. The 300 students received curriculum instruction presented by War of 1812 content specialists from Canada, the United States and First Nations/American Indians and participated in artist workshops and interpretive activities at Perry's Victory and International Peace Memorial.
