Workshop on Arts Work in Conflict Affected Areas. September 16 2016
The aim of the workshop is to enhance awareness of and explore the potential for Arts work in conflict-affected areas in and around the Middle East. It will highlight case studies from different situations in the recent past with current and former British Council staff and partners sharing experiences. The intention is to examine the nature of Arts projects in fragile states and reflect on the different approaches employed and impact achieved.We see Conflict Affected Areas as the spaces in and around conflict that allow for activity and influence; conmmunities moving towards conflict; local zones of safety; working with refugees from conflicts and in areas of post-conflict reconciliation.
