Support Artistic Expression
About Creative Community for Peace
When David Renzer — the Former Chairman and CEO of Universal Music Publishing— and Steve Schnur — the Worldwide Executive & Music President for Electronic Arts — became aware of the escalating rate of entertainers and musical artists who were canceling performances in Israel, they banded together with several other high-level entertainment industry executives to form Creative Community for Peace (CCFP) in 2012.
Creative Community for Peace represents a cross-section of the creative world dedicated to promoting music and the arts as a bridge to peace, while supporting artistic freedom, and countering the cultural boycott of Israel. We understand the power that music, film, and television has in bringing people together of all backgrounds and believe in artists and their ability to affect lives and effect change.
Members of Creative Community for Peace’s Advisory Board and Professional Networking Committee work for some of the entertainment industries premier entertainment organizations, including: Warner Bros Records, Sony/ATV Publishing, Geffen Records, Atlantic Records, Columbia Records, William Morris Endeavor, Interscope Records, Ultra Records, AEG Presents, Capitol Records, and Amazon among many others.
The entertainment industry is a notoriously insular community, built on relationships and particular practices, which makes our organization uniquely situated to engage with artists, their managers and agents.
CCFP is apolitical and neither stands for any government official or party, nor do we receive funding or support from any government entity. Instead, we provide balance to the discourse regarding the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and encourage artists to travel to the region to experience it for themselves. We encourage dialogue, co-existence, and working towards greater mutual acceptance.
