The workshops will be organised, led and hosted by four partners under one of the following specific themes: conflict; conviviality; creativity; and culture. Each workshop will adopt one of the themes either conceptually or methodologically.
The development of professional skills in creativity, culture, and in methodologies of conviviality to address conflict are of utmost importance for cultural operators working with local communities facing conflict situations. Consequently, the aims of these workshops are: to elevate the potential of art and its impact in conflict circumstances; to reflect upon, to develop and to share good mediation practices through art and culture in conflict conditions in order to develop and transfer skills between cultural academics and professionals.
A “handbook of good practices in mediation of conflict situations through artistic practice, creativity, and culture” will reflect the lessons learned in this activity as well as in the mediation labs.
