Celebrating John O'Neal


The toolkit, or "Tools for Continuing the Conversation" is a second disc included with your purchase of the "Acting Together on the World Stage" documentary, and is designed to accompany and complement the documentary. The "Acting Together" toolkit includes 18 additional short videos, as well as 18 print documents:

  • The short videos expand on the material presented in the documentary, and feature additional stories and conversations among leading international artists and peacebuilding practitioners.
  • The print documents include guidelines for planning and documenting peacebuilding performance initiatives, discussion questions, policy recommendations, a glossary and other resources for teaching, learning and conversing.

The short videos can be viewed on a DVD player or a computer. The print documents can only be viewed on a computer. If you have a toolkit disc, and have any difficulty accessing these files, see the instructions on the right side-bar.
Whether you are an artist, cultural worker or peacebuilder; an educator or a student; a policymaker or a funder; we hope that the resources in the toolkit will inform, challenge and support you, and strengthen work in the field of peacebuilding performance.
