The program in Peacebuilding and the Arts is directed by Dr. Cynthia Cohen, continuing work previously undertaken within the framework of ‘Creative Approaches to Coexistence and Reconciliation.' Our program focuses on the distinctive contributions of culture and the arts to the transformation of conflict. We collaborate with several departments and programs at Brandeis University, including MusicUnitesUS, PAX (Peace, Conflict and Coexistence Studies), the School of Creative Arts, and the Office of the Arts.
Our current major initiative is "A Way Out of No Way," a multi-media project that is documenting the forty-year practice of cultural work of the extraordinary musician, educator, activist and cultural worker, Jane Wilburn Sapp.
Peacebuilding and the Arts is part of Brandeis University's International Center for Ethics, Justice and Public Life. The Ethics Center also houses a program in international justice and sponsors an array of programs on the Brandeis campus.
