Bearing Exquisite Witness Arts Festival
September 24-26, 2009
Presented as part of the 2009
Women PeaceMakers Program
Bearing Exquisite Witness is a three-day event, held in conjunction with the institute's Women PeaceMakers Program, to highlight the ability of the arts to transform individuals and reconcile communities who have suffered conflict and violence. The Festival showcases playwrights, filmmakers, poets, musicians, visual artists and academics from the fields of theater arts and conflict resolution who are using the creative power of art to raise awareness, prevent violence, help communities recover, change policies of exclusion and heal trauma. I have been invited to exhibit my work at this special event.
