in: Workshops | 23.11.2013

This year`s Global Peace Workshop (GPW 2014) will be hosted by Muğla Sıtkı Koçman University, Muğla/Turkey. In this second annual GPW we will explore the role of young people in promoting peace through arts, culture and tourism and welcome people from all countries to come together to identify the challenges and opportunities facing young people in building a culture of peace. GPW 2014 will bring together practitioners, academics and students of peace and conflict studies from institutions worldwide. Introduced by high-profile keynotes speakers, the workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to explore one of five following workshop themes:

1. Connecting Communities through Theatre, Poetry and the Spoken Word
2. Cultural Diplomacy and Dialogue – Where Next?
3. Safeguarding Culture
4. Travelling and Tourism During and After Conflict
5. Picturing Others: Portraying Conflict through Fine Art and Photography

This year we also introduce master classes for participants, helping to hone core skills related to advocacy, peace building, development and foreign relations. A certificate will be jointly provided by Coventry University and CESRAN International at the end of the workshops.

If you have a strong background in social activism or engagement in public life, for instance through volunteering for a charity or being a member of a political movement, and especially if you have experience working in a conflict-affected society or working with youth, then this workshop is for you.
