BUILDING EXPERTISE ON ARTS PRACTICES FOR PEACE EDUCATION AND INCLUSION
Who benefits from the research?
TAI activities and publications aim to stimulate readers and participants to reflect on the role of the performing arts for developing peace education, social inclusion and conflict transformation. Our workshops are aimed at interested individuals with research, practice and/or policy roles in the public and voluntary sectors, as well as at researchers and academics.
For example, following Rodriguez-Sanchez 3-month visit to the University of Glasgow to learn about Odena's work she was appointed to lead Batuta Foundation’s Psychosocial team. She developed their practice to include tailored support activities depending on needs and context, e.g. whole family activities for children recently displaced. Rodriguez-Sanchez, an active member of TAI from its inception, is now a National Coordinator for Batuta, influencing music practices with children across Batuta's centres.
