PeaceBuildForum 3
Peacebuilding encompasses efforts that aim to transform conflict by nurturing compassion and creating safe spaces for people to live fulfilled lives, with dignity and joy. Please join us as we explore the relationship between traditional/folk arts and historical memory, reconciliation, anti-violence, immigration rights and other justice work through a screening of the documentary, Acting Together on the World Stage, and a panel discussion featuring artists, activists and scholars.

The Folklore Project is proud to be collaborating on this program with Professor Cynthia Cohen of Brandeis University’s Peacebuilding and the Arts Initiative, and local artists and activists Germaine Ingram, Yared Portillo, Ximena Violante and the Liberian Women’s Chorus for Change, featuring Fatu Gayflor, Marie Nyenabo, Tokay Tomah and Zaye Tete.

The Liberian Women’s Chorus for Change inspires awareness and dialogue about domestic violence and other concerns of the local Liberian community through traditional song and stories. Throughout the spring and summer, these exceptional singers and dancers will be performing for Philadelphia’s Liberians at various sites, and networking with local social service agencies and activists to connect people with resources so as to foster individual and community strength and dignity.
