Navigating the Nexus of Art and Peace

A reflective guide for peacebuilding practitioners and artists working together to transform conflict and inspire creativity

This book is published by Women Peace Makers, where you can also download en epub version (see below). The information below is from their website.

We live in a fragmented world.  We need the courage of these navigators, who with compass in hand, share the deep wisdom that peace is possible when the imagination unfolds in the creative act.” – JOHN PAUL LEDERACH

This book for peacebuilders and artists is a must-read for those seeking out collaboration. Art for peace initiatives are becoming more and more popular as creative approaches are proving their worth to bridge divides and transform conflict in novel and inspiring ways. At the same time, community access and the dynamics of conflict can contribute to artistic inspiration and the opportunity to co-create something absorbing and impactful. Such approaches merit more attention. Peacebuilders and artists come to the table with very distinct priorities and perspectives. This guide brings together artists and peacebuilders to reflect on collaboration and to promote the best possible practices for art for peace and creative peacebuilding through all the tension—and the potential—that lie in the process.
