From 16-27 November 2020, PRAXIS hosted a virtual workshop on transforming conflict and displacement through arts and humanities research. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was designed as an entirely virtual space where AHRC GCRF researchers and their communities could join conversations, engage in dialogue and debate key themes of conflict-related research. Part of this programme was around table discussion on 19 November, which brought together two field research experts, Dr Margaret Ebubedike (Faculty of Wellbeing, Education and Language Studies, the Open University) and Dr Heather Flowe (School of Psychology, University of Birmingham) to discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on field research.

Watch the critical review of Changing the Story Projects in Eastern Africa Project led by Dr Marlon Moncrieffe, (Principal Investigator) University of Brighton, UK. With partners Dr John Mwangi St. Paul’s University, Kenya, and Mr Chaste Uwihoreye, Uysenga Ni Imazi, Rwanda.

Collaboratively designed arts-based Virtual Reality space with a focus on sharing best practices on Peace Education via CTS research in East Africa. Created by Follow on Fund Project, Consolidation, Learning and Evaluation in Kenya and Rwanda.

This book investigates the power of art to enhance human development and to initiate positive social change for individuals and societies recovering from conflict. Edited by Changing the Story partners Melis Cin and Faith Mkwananzi, the report features contributions from across the CTS network including Aylwyn Walsh, Scott Burnett, Joshua Chikozho, Willard Muntanga, Tendayi Marovah, Laura K. Taylor, Claudia Pineda Marín, Edwin Cubillos, Diego Alfonso, and Nub Raj Bhandari. This book provides an important guide to the role that arts can play in addressing epistemic injustice and contributing to social justice and human development. As such, it will be of interest to international development and arts practitioners, policy makers, and to students and researchers across participatory arts, youth studies, international development, social justice, and peace and conflict studies.

Article shares international research project led by UK and East African stakeholders. This was framed as a consolidation of learning in our analysis and evaluation of findings from four Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF) projects. - Mobile Arts for Peace (Rwanda) - Young people’s interpretations of civic national values (Kenya) - Connective Memories (Rwanda) - Reanimating Contested Spaces (Rwanda). These research projects emerge from a larger AHRC GCRF project known as Changing the Story which asks how arts, heritage and human rights education can support youth-centred approaches to civil society building in post-conflict settings across the world.

This Scheme of Work document was devised as a framework for research and development by the Phase 2 project 'Interpreting Civic National Values' to allow young people in Kenya and Nepal to REFLECT individually on life experiences in their community and to DISCUSS these with each other - to RECORD their thoughts through shared writing and shared artwork - to bring these thoughts to life through PERFORMANCES of their choice such as: theatre, singing, poetry recital - to share their new ways of seeing community through CROSS-CULTURAL EXCHANGES in their interpretations of civic national values. We saw this Scheme of Work as facilitating a process of empowerment; for young people to advocate their communication of the peacebuilding process to policymakers in their post-conflict national contexts.
