Performing Arts in conflict areas

Conference Five

There have been wars and conflicts around the world and most times as we focus on the negative effects of the wars and conflicts, we rarely pay attention to Art – specifically the performing Arts. In East Africa today, some of the member states are in conflict i.e. in Burundi and South Sudan. Ruth Daniel will moderate a panel with speakers from these conflict areas as well as bringing her experience and the work of her organization – In Place of War.

Venue: Uganda Museum
