Heading: Presentation + workshop "Beautiful Resistance: Arts as means of building peace within"

Length: 30min+45min

Introduction: Arts are pure humanity. They are beautiful, positive and constructive means of self-expression and means to build peace within individuals to be able to build it around them. With arts, stereotypes disappear and we feel as equals based on what touches us as human being and not based from where this art comes from. I will make a presentation and show a 10 minutes video and then move to workshop.

The workshop will be a space for imagination and creativity of what form of arts touch us more... how you can you present your dream in drawing or writing or through preforming or visual art means.
