Final project report: Mobile Arts for Peace (MAP) Large Grant Evaluation – Joint Report

19th June 2024

The overall research aim for the Large Grant Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) project was to explore the use of interdisciplinary arts-based practices for peacebuilding in Indonesia, Kyrgyzstan, Nepal and Rwanda, including political, cultural, religious and linguistic factors, as well as the crosscutting issues of gender and intersecting inequalities, environments and the exclusion of children and youth from policymaking processes. This report combines the separate final evaluation reports from both the Institute for Social Innovation and Impact (University of Northampton) and the Children and Young People Thematic Hub, Moray House School of Education, University of Edinburgh. Its aim is to consolidate and emphasise the shared learnings and insights which bridge the separate evaluations, whilst building upon those evaluations. Hyperlinks are provided throughout the report to direct readers to specific sections of the individual reports, if they wish to explore the original evaluations contributing to this report. The research was funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council’s Global Challenges Research Fund and the MAP project was led by the University of Lincoln.
