Arts, Culture and Peacebuilding (Video of the Week)
In this video Basti, Frank and Nik reflect on Xchange Perspectives’ work in South Sudan since 2005. Dominik ‘Nik’ Lehnert is TRANSCEND Media Service’s Video Production Assistant.
In recent years, arts-based approaches to conflict transformation have gained increased attention and prominence from a range of disciplines. There is an ever increasing number of individuals and civil society organisations utilising the arts for the positive transformation of societal conflicts. Since 2005, Xchange Perspectives has been active in South Sudan, working at the nexus of arts, culture and peacebuilding.
