In 2013 Londonderry/Derry is going to be the UK City of
Culture. It therefore
seems appropriate that INCORE will offer a new module on Culture and Peacebuilding
as part of its Summer School during this year. Following a general overview
of the relationships between culture and peace and an investigation of some key
theories in this field, there will be a day each devoted to drama, sport and
the moving image and their contribution to peacebuilding. The module will
focus on experiential learning and use a range of contributors including academics
and practitioners from Northern Ireland, and participants will also have
an opportunity to make presentations about their own work or that of their
and Peacebuilding in Northern Ireland
