John Noltner

John Noltner has been telling stories in image and word for 20 years. His work uses storytelling as a vehicle to bridge social, political, and cultural differences. Since 2009, Noltner has been asking people the simple (or not so simple) question, “What does peace mean to you?” His multimedia project A Peace of My Mind combines photographs of diverse people with their comments on the meaning of peace. The project has received both regional and national awards and has been presented at the Nobel Peace Prize Forum, the Peace and Justice Studies Association, and the Dayton International Peace Museum. It represents Noltner’s belief that art and storytelling have the power to transform our hearts as well as our communities.
