Report: Strengthening Work at the Nexus of Arts, Culture and Peacebuilding

On November 8, 2011, Search for Common Ground, the Program in Peacebuilding and the Arts at Brandeis University and the Alliance for Peacebuilding convened a gathering at the United States Institute of Peace to explore how work at the nexus of arts, culture and peacebuilding could be strengthened. Seventeen people attended with ties to academic institutions, non-governmental organizations and national and international organizations in both the arts/culture and peace sectors. This report summarizes the conversation and highlights action steps for strengthening work at the nexus of arts, culture and peacebuilding.

Jonathan and I are eager to hear ideas about what kinds of initiatives -- networks, trainings, advocacy, etc. etc. -- would strengthen work at the nexus of arts, culture and peacebuilding. All thoughts welcome!!
