On November 4, SGI-Venezuela youth members held a Soka Youth Festival at Teatro Teresa Carreño in Caracas. The importance of valuing diversity and employing dialogue in building peace in the community--the festival's theme--was expressed through various mediums including drama, modern dance, salsa and flamenco. The youth members also performed gymnastics as well as acrobatic bicycle stunts.
