Learning Exchanges

Recognizing that many players in acct work in isolation and seek opportunities for connection and exchange, and building on the success of three online exchanges that IMPACT hosted with partners in 2018 and 2019 (one in Spanish), IMPACT has established the virtual learning exchanges team to envision and coordinate these global, focused online conversations.

2020 Learning Exchanges

In 2020, IMPACT is planning two virtual learning exchanges in English, French, and Spanish on Peace Insight platform launched by Peace Direct.  The first will take place on April 21st and 22nd and the other in May 2020.



2019 Learning Exchanges

In 2019, IMPACT hosted four virtual learning exchanges. The first learning exchange was hosted in Spanish and attracted over 130 participants from 21 countries across Latin America and beyond; the second learning exchange focused on higher education engagement in arts, culture and conflict transformation and gathered 43 participants from 15 countries across the globe.

2018 Learning Exchanges

In 2018, IMPACT hosted two virtual exchanges that each attracted approximately 75 people and one in-person exchange with 16 people. Participants came from many parts of the world, and all sectors of the Arts, Culture and Conflict Transformation (ACCT) ecosystem, including artists, peacebuilders and funders.
