Peacebuilding and the Arts

Art has significant potential to impact peacebuilding in areas of conflict resolution. Artistic expression offers a path to understand the perspectives of others on conflict and social injustice. Art also offers marginalized or oppressed groups a voice and a platform for expression. 

Through the arts, local communities are empowered to tell their stories, to influence funders and policy makers and join them in creating meaningful change. PartnersGlobal continues to collaborate with civil society actors and the creative community to design initiatives that highlight human rights and peacebuilding.

Listen to several of the artist contributors to PartnersGlobal’s first Arts4Resilience event, speak about the connection between arts and resilience.
