During his residency, Peter led art workshops at The Queen Zein al-Sharaf Institute for Development. He trained a team of 10 Jordanian aspiring art educators, who then assisted in workshops with younger children in the morning and older youth in the afternoon over four consecutive days. Each young person was asked to create a work of art about a time in their life when they benefited from having a second chance (a theme central to Peter’s own growth, and one he’d used with great success in his prior work with youth at home). The workshops generated dozens of works for a culminating exhibition on the value of having second chances in life.
In addition to leading the art workshops, Peter was guest of honor at a reception hosted by Ambassador David Hale for Jordan’s arts community, and presented a slide lecture on his social-engagement art practice at the art museum Darat al Funun.
