Abstract

The paper explores the role of art in particular and creativity in general in the transformation of social conflict. In addition to artistic creativity that contributes to experiential learning among conflict parties and stakeholders, a much larger scope of group-based social creativity that engages structural inequity and international systems is addressed. This paper builds on a United States Institute of Peace Public Education on International Peacebuilding Lecture that the author delivered at Juniata College in Pennsylvania, USA on March 18, 2013.
