For a more reflective event venue, the United States Institute of Peace certainly makes a statement and evokes a compelling sense of unity. Located on the prime northwest corner of the National Mall, the building is surrounded by our nation’s most iconic monuments. Check out the inspiring Peace Trail on the National Mall. “Elevating stories of key figures, institutions, and moments in history that demonstrate America’s enduring commitment to peace”. It winds its way up to the recently constructed (2011) Institute of Peace.
Spreading the Promotion of Peace
The institute was independently founded in 1984 by Congress as a way to promote peace and prevent violent conflict. They have pursued this vision since by “working with local partners to prevent conflicts from turning to bloodshed and to end it when they do. The Institute provides training, analysis, and other resources to people, organizations, and governments working to build peace.”
The Peace Institute holds its own thought-provoking events for the public to attend. Such as the “Resilience in Conflict” forum, VOA documentary screenings, and panel discussions. But it’s also available for hosting private events. The Institute offers seven event spaces ranging from a Great Hall, to an Auditorium, and even a Rooftop Terrace. They’re more-than equipped for hosting unforgettable “receptions, seated dinners, film screenings, meetings and conferences.” Plus, they offer in-house catering, valet parking, and phenomenal audiovisual technologies. Don’t forget, when you choose this venue, it serves as an investment by helping the institute carry out its altruistic mission and values!
