About THE TIPA PROJECT: TIPA programs create an “international conversation” by means of free public readings and performances from great works of world literature, poetry, music, and drama. These programs not only honor and celebrate the literary, artistic, and cultural heritages of the nations of the world; they also encourage an ever-increasing number of people worldwide to integrate literature and the arts into their daily lives, to lift their spirits and to act as a powerful force for peace and reconciliation. The Humanities help to bring out our own humanity and to make us more proactive in working for justice, equality, and world peace. TIPA is a philanthropic endeavor produced, directed, and operated by Stanley Eugene Tannen. Recognized as a model for community building arts/peace programming that can be replicated worldwide, TIPA has been twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
The TIPA Project has been widely praised by statesmen, U. S. presidents, civic leaders, actors, musicians, writers, professors, U. N. officials, diplomats, and other leading personages and world organizations, for its contributions to international peace and understanding.
