MAP Webinar: Visualising Peace

  EVENT DATE: 18/04/2024

Join us for the upcoming MAP Webinar on Mobile Arts for Peace (MAP) – Visualising Peace, on Thursday, 18 April 2024 at 09:30 – 11:00 am BST on Zoom.

The webinar will consist of an interactive session that explores the methodological structure and implementation of the MAP ‘Visualising Peace’ project in Rwanda. We will explore the various activities which were undertaken by the participants, as well as the tools to present their findings to policymakers. The session will conclude with a presentation and discussion around the impact of the project on national policy, and the participants themselves.

In Visualising Peace creative approaches were used to explore visual story-telling methods such as framing and sequencing. These creative approaches enabled the participants to represent mental health through the production, screening and discussion of films. These films featured diverse aesthetic and storytelling strategies from across several cultural contexts.

The practical arts based methods used within the project enabled participants to share their lived experiences, offering insight and perspectives not easily captured through traditional research.  This is being used to inform curriculum, strategy and policy for peacebuilding and mental health.

We look forward to having a further discussion on the topics, and hope that you could take part and join us!
