CAS Arts and International Cooperation
Participants gain a critical understanding of the potential and limitations of working with art in fragile contexts and in peacebuilding. Through examples and field visits, they get insight into actual projects in this realm. They develop a sensitive approach to international artistic collaboration in regions of conflict and learn how to evaluate its qualities and social relevance. Experienced practitioners and researchers present for discussion artistic strategies and methods for project development, management and evaluation. On the basis of these contents, the participants are mentored to conduct further research or formulate projects or initiatives, which match their specific interests or work contexts.
