We Exchange Stories
to Change History

Since 2009, Guestbook has been bringing together youths in communities divided by war, migration, and social conflict. Our creative peacebuilding model is simple and effective: we invite young people from communities in crisis to exchange their stories and invent new ones through leaps of empathy and imagination.

Through creative video projects the Exchanging Stories — Changing History initiative has worked with youths and peace partners in five continents


In Peace Apart — Derry-Londonderry, Northern Ireland
