Can art transform conflict?

By Groundviews - Mon Oct 24, 10:18 pm

Does art have a role in reconciliation? Does it help in healing trauma? Can the creative power of arts be used as a catalyst for action – especially among those who have been disenfranchised?

How do you document violence or curate memories?

These are questions that concern people who value creativity and democracy and want to explore the synergies between the two.

A group of scholars, researchers, activists and artists from 11 countries including Sri Lanka will discuss these questions and search for answers while sharing their own work on the theme, Arts in Reconciliation at an international conference to be held at the BMICH from 7-9th November.
