Arts & Culture for Peace

How can you participate?


The Initiative is open to pre-primary, primary, secondary, technical or vocational education, (in formal or non-formal settings), and to teacher training.

Does what?

Schools can work flexibly on one, two, or all three of the Arts & Culture for Peace activities – or any combination of these – in support of the ASPnet Action Areas.

Schools are asked to begin by undertaking their own study of ‘conflict and peace’.

In realising their ideas, Schools are asked to use a ‘less is more’ creative and philosophical approach to reflect the spirit of sustainability across diverse cultures.

With whom?

Schools can undertake new work, or join a project to add further value to existing work. Be creative in your thinking what collaboration might be the most impactful in relation to the ASPnet Action Areas?

Schools could collaborate with artists and other partners

With what effect?

The results of these activities should aim to benefit local and (by sharing outcomes, also) international communities as well as represent the ASPnet Action Areas.
