Canon Paul-Gordon Chandler is an author, interfaith advocate, social entrepreneur and a US Episcopal priest.  He is also the Founding President of CARAVAN, an interreligious peacebuilding arts non-profit affiliated with The Episcopal Church that uses the arts to build bridges between the creeds and cultures of Middle East and the West.  They have organized and curated major East-West art exhibitions held at such venues as St. Paul’s Cathedral in London and National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.
