The Art of Peace
This interactive workshop will explore creativity (thinking outside the box) as a tool for making social change. Through historic, global and personal case studies, students will come to understand peace building as an “art” that often calls for a creative approach.
Engaging theatre, facilitated discussion, role playing scenarios and interactive simulation games will empower participants to harness their own creative potential for a more peaceable world.
• Students will explore the idea of peace-building as an art form that requires a creative approach
• Students will gain awareness of the work of various artist/activists world-wide who use their passions for social justice
• Students will be given the opportunity to practice non-violent responses to conflict, as well as act out responses through forum theatre
