Meet Global Kids participant, Antoinette Stone, who will be joining us on the Peace Boat for the summer MAPA program

IMG_4927Antoinette Stone is currently attending Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts. She was originally born in Jamaica and currently lives in Brooklyn, NY. Starting in September she will be entering her sophomore year in college. She is studying the Prison Industrial Complex and how art (dance, music, and literature) is a form of agency, specifically looking at how one tells a story through art when one’s voice has been silenced. She is excited to be a part of Peace Boat this summer and says that it is an honor and a pleasure to be able to travel to indigenous communities in Central America and document the experience through the arts—specifically photography, as it connects to what she is studying. While on the boat she will try to capture people in action, as the boat is very active. In the communities the participants will enter, she will capture portraits of those in the indigenous communities. In her free time she likes to read, watch movies, and hang out with her friends.
