Local creative arts organization Dreamland Collective partners with the P.E.A.C.E. Initiative (Putting an End to Abuse through Community Efforts) and the City of San Antonio’s Department for Culture & Creative Development (DCCD) to present P.E.A.C.E in the Park in observance of Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Aiming to raise awareness of (and provide healing from) domestic violence in SA, the free, family-friendly event features an “Altar for Peace” art installation, guest speakers, workshops, yoga, kids activities, healthy food provided by the Krishna Temple of SA and various local vendors. P.E.A.C.E in the Park also plays host to live performances from a swell smattering of local musical acts, including nuevo-Latino orquestra Volcán, accordion virtuoso Juanito Castillo, indie soul outfit The Foreign Arm, rap group Chisme, electronic mantra-rock ensemble Aliens WITH Halos and trippy synth/guitar performer Flaco Chango. Free, 4-10pm, Roosevelt Park, 331 Roosevelt Ave., (210) 995-7377, thepeaceinitiative.net. — JC
