Workshop “Art and Reconciliation: Conflict, Culture and Community”

June 28th and 29th
Post Conflict research Centre, Sarajevo, Bosia and Herzegovina

Workshop organized in collaboration between King’s College London, the London School of Economics and the University of the Arts in London.

Art and Reconciliation: Conflict, Culture and Community’ is an innovative collaboration between  King’s College London, the London School of Economics and the University of the Arts in London that aims to improve our understanding of a major current and future global security challenge.

Although billions of pounds have been invested in post-conflict reconciliation projects involving aspects of justice and the creative arts, there has been no study of this phenomenon as such. ‘Art and Reconciliation: Conflict, Culture and Community addresses this major gap, opening up knowledge exchange between government, academia and the third sector.  Impacting beyond the academic community, this unique collaboration brings together academics, artists and NGOs to create and develop artistic practices and artefacts through a variety of media.

This inter-disciplinary project combines history, conflict resolution methodologies, art and creative practice, and both qualitative and quantitative social sciences.
