Abstract

This volume explores the relationship between peacebuilding and the arts. Through a series of original essays the authors break new ground, setting out fresh ways of analysing how different art forms can contribute to the processes and practices of building peace. The book is divided into five sections (on Visual Arts, Music, Literature, Film and Theatre/Dance), with over 20 authors offering overviews of each art form, case studies from around the globe and critical reflections on how the arts can contribute to peacebuilding. By bringing together the insights of scholars and practitioners working at the intersection of these two broad fields, this book presents a series of unique, critical perspectives on the interaction of diverse art forms with a range of peacebuilding endeavours.
