For Hanna Bondarewska, the path to world peace not only exists, she is walking it — one artistic endeavor at a time.

Hanna Bondarewska stars with Tyler Herman in "Summer at Nohant" a production by the Ambassador Theater International Cultural Center.

“If we don’t have art, we cannot create anything,” Bondarewska said. “Even Einstein and all the most famous scientists used art as their inspiration to their inventions.” Her invention is the Ambassador Theater International Cultural Center (ATICC), a nonprofit the Warsaw native founded in 2008 to serve as part professional theater company and part educational epicenter.

“I started this theater to really open up an international cultural dialogue,” Bondarewska said. “This is something that is very close to my heart, and I believe that through cultural understanding and education, you ultimately create peace.”
