On campus

This course explores creative methods for conflict transformation, with emphasis on embodiment and movement, combining theory and practice in a participatory dynamic. Participants will be introduced to different methods, incorporated in a carefully structured framework. The idea is to work hands-on and learn by doing, by observing one’s own transformation processes, sharing their personal and collective experiences and dialoguing with theories and authors of the field.

Different techniques are explored, including movement, theatre, music, and contemplative practices. Exploration of the dynamics of embodying and languaging (voicing and communicating transformation) are explored through painting, journaling and embodied writing. The course aims at providing a space where conflict workers can engage in transforming their own conflicts and tap into their own creativity, confidence, differences, commonalities, and power. Using these experiences as a learning resource, participants will further transfer this knowledge to understand the place and impact of creative approaches in the field of peacebuilding.


Participants will become familiar with:

- Embodiment, movement and dance
- Storytelling, painting, journaling, embodied writing
- Creativity for social transformation
- The place of creative approaches in peacebuilding projects
