TWB Digest #398

Dear reader, 

We hope you are doing fine. Check out  Border Crossings, Watch Cyprus Avenue.

there is this book 
There Must Be Happy Endings: On a Theatre of Optimism and Honesty,- written by Megan Sandberg-Zakian. You can get a FREE copy because a generous donor has made it possible for those who want to read but can’t afford one — more info by clicking the “Book Bank” link on the 3rd Thing Press website.


As authoritarian regimes crackdown on dissent, artists and creatives are bearing the brunt of the pressure, finding themselves at risk of threats, harassment, arrest, imprisonment, torture, and even death because of their creative work. This has become only more of a reality during the COVID-19 pandemic, as governments exploit “emergency powers” to silence criticism.

In response to the particular impact of these threats in Africa, the Artists at Risk Connection (ARC) of PEN America has collaborated with Africa Human Rights Network (AHRN), Alert-Art-Afrik, Arterial Network, Freemuse, Hammerl Arts Rights Transfer (HART), The Museum of Movements, PEN Uganda, Safe Havens – the Malmö Meetings, and Southern Africa Human Rights Defenders Network (SAHRDN) to launch Amani: Africa Creative Defence Network*. This coalition aims to provide rapid responses to creatives at risk in Africa, coordinate adequate support when artists and cultural professionals in Africa face danger because of their work, and support regional safe havens in Africa. This initiative was first conceived after the majority of these partners met at the 6th annual Safe Havens conference, a gathering of the global arts rights justice sector held in Cape Town last December, where they discussed the need for a collaborative protection mechanism to support artists across the region.

If you or someone you know is an artist at risk in Africa, you can get in touch with the network by filling out our secure form here, which is available in English and French.

Theatre & Peacebuilding Online Virtual Learning Exchange

JOIN THE ACTING TOGETHER ON THE WORLD STAGE CONVERSATION ON APRIL 21 & 22!!
 Dear Theatre Artist/Peacebuilder:
We would like to invite you to participate in an online virtual Learning Exchange based on the ecosystem of Arts, Culture and Conflict Transformation. Join us for a conversation co-convened by:
Artasfoundation
Crear Vale la Pena
Free Culture Invisible
Fundación Cambio Democrático
Humanity United
Imagining Together Platform for Arts, Culture and Conflict Transformation
International Community Arts Festival
International Teaching Artist Collaborative
 
The Partnering organizations have come together to convene an exchange because experience and evidence demonstrate that arts and culture can be crafted to contribute to the prevention, reduction and transformation of violent conflict and to affect positive and sustainable change. We invite your participation because it is vital to consider the perspectives and ideas from people in every region of the world, working in our field locally and globally, in policy and in practice, in contemporary arts and in traditional cultural forms.

The Learning Exchange will take place on April 21-22, during 48 hrs, on Platform4Dialogue, the online written format of the peacebuilding organization, Peace DirectTo inspire and trigger our exchange, we share here Acting Together on the World Stage, which documents the contributions of performance and ritual to conflict transformation, and offers reflections from Directors, Writers, Community and Stage Performers, Elders of First Nations, and Experts in our Field.
This collective conversation is designed for artists, cultural workers, peacebuilding practitioners, researchers, funders and policy-makers to explore together the importance of three key components of our work: Resistance, Re-humanization and Reconciliation.
Participants can expect to interact in a secure, constructive, and focused online dialogue (all via written posts) with other registered participants. We will have resource materials that you can access during, or after the exchange. You are free to share these with others. Facilitators from the field will help guide the online dialogue and pose questions throughout each day.
 
Details
 The Learning Exchange will be in two languages, English and Spanish, simultaneously and in the same platform but in two separate spaces. Those who speak both languages can move from one to the other.The exchange happens entirely online so you will need access to a computer with internet connection or a mobile phone or tablet.Participants will be able to log-in at any time during the 24-hour period of a day (from any region and time zone).We ask that participants log-in at least two times per day during each of the two 24-hour “days” (April 21 and 22). In our experience, people stay active in the Learning Exchange for 20 minutes or more each time. Hopefully, you will log in more than twice per day!Over the two days of the exchange, a number of discussion topics and survey questions will be proposed. Participants will add their comments, ideas, and responses each day.
 
No advance preparation is required, though we do ask participants to draw on their own expertise and experiences to contribute to the conversations and hope you will watch the documentary Acting Together on the World Stage.
 
We will have reading materials, videos, and links available when the learning exchange begins and throughout the 2 days as a resource.
 
Please let us know if you are able to participate no later than APRIL 19 by responding to:
arminkav@brandeis.edu
Armine Avetisyan 
IMPACT, Project Manager
 
We will then send you registration information. 
We hope you will be able to join us for this exciting discussion. 
 
Warm regards,

The ACCT field: There are people all over the World taking diverse approaches to address conflict transformation through artistic and cultural actions. They are artists, peacebuilding practitioners, conflict transformation experts, teachers, public servants, thinkers, funders, and more. Collectively, they form the Arts, Culture and Conflict Transformation (ACCT) Ecosystem, a field that is becoming more and more visible in the 21st Century. Many of its members are aware that they have been helping to create this new field during the last decades.

IMPACT: is a collective values-driven collaboration of culturally and geographically diverse leaders in the arts, culture, conflict transformation, peacebuilding, higher education, philanthropy, and non-government sectors who understand the critical role that the arts and other aspects of culture play in transforming conflict. One of the ways this collaboration works is by developing Learning Exchanges. These are virtual conversations among those in the ACCT Ecosystem to raise awar eness of its importance and challenges, and to share the extraordinary diversity, knowledge and opportunities that the field has. 

ACTING TOGETHER ON THE WORLD STAGE: Performance and the Creative Transformation of Conflict (ATWS): is a multi-media educational initiative intended to document and strengthen the contributions of performance and ritual to social justice and conflict transformation. The initiative consists of a feature documentary, a two-volume anthology, short videos and PDF resources for learning and teaching. At the core of the ATWS resources are the stories of courageous artists, peacebuilders, and community leaders who work with creativity, persistence and resilience to improve their world.
