Peacebook is Collaboraction's annual performance festival of short works about peace and peacemaking in Chicago. In 2016, the first Peacebook Festival launched, touring to the south and west sides of Chicago with free performances, workshops and meals. In 2017 the festival kicked off at the Goodman Theatre before touring Chicago. 

In 2019, Collaboraction will produce 21 world premiere short works of 7 minutes or less as part of the festival. Peacebook is curated through a combination of open and invited submissions from emerging and established artists throughout the city. Every performance is followed by a Crucial Conversation and the festival serves to unite Chicagoans and engage the audience with the Chicago Peace Movement.

PEACEBOOK is presented as part of the Chicago Park District’s Night Out in the Parks series, supported by Mayor Rahm Emanuel. Arts programming in neighborhoods across the city advances the goals of the Chicago Park District and the Chicago Cultural Plan. Now in its sixth year, the 2018 Night Out in the Parks series will host over 1,000 cultural events and programs at more than 250 neighborhood parks throughout the city, making community parks a safe haven and hubs of activity. Projects will vary from traditional performances and concerts, to movies, peace rallies, community workshops, nature based programs, dance pieces, festivals, and more. The Chicago Park District has partnered with more than 100 arts and community organizations to expand and produce this successful initiative.
