Arts-based initiatives, including theatre, are increasingly being used as part of peacebuilding strategies at different stages in the cycle of violence in war-torn societies. Join Laurel Borisenko for this evening talk, The Moral Imagination: Can Art Bring Peace?, and learn under what conditions theatre can contribute to peacebuilding in communities that have undergone violent conflict. We’ll explore the impact of these initiatives on post-conflict reconstruction, trauma healing and reconciliation, how they can aid in ending the cycle of violence, and creating a cycle of healing.

Cost: By donation to The Power of Hope – Learners must register to reserve a seat.
