Peace Through Pyramids: Ferguson, 2015-2016
Thanks to grants from the Regional Arts Commission, Arts & Education Council of St. Louis and Jewish Federation of St. Louis we brought our Peace Through Pyramids program to Ferguson! It started on March 14th, 2015 when the St. Louis Arches performed at the Ferguson Library to promote the new Peace Through Pyramids: Ferguson program.

Then, children from Ferguson teamed up with children from Saul Mirowitz Jewish Community School to learn circus arts. They put on three culmination shows in May at City Museum, St. Louis Jewish Community Center and the Ferguson Library to show off what they had learned.
