There are many paths to pursuing peace among divided communities. In this workshop-style symposium, we will engage with artists who use their gifts to cross divides in areas of conflict.

Arts workshop with Deborah Nathan, Executive Director of Artsbridge, Inc. Engage in artistic exercises and dialogical techniques designed to attend productively to conflict and trauma from violence. Deborah will draw from her work bringing together teens from each side of the Israeli and Palestinian conflict.

Musical Workshop with Jewish Israeli recording artist Achinoam Nini (Noa), and Arab-Israeli singer, songwriter, and actress Mira Awad. Be part of a conversation with the two acclaimed performers who will share their journey of creative collaboration and peace activism through story and song.

The program will include an interactive text study session on pluralism facilitated by Rabbi Or Rose, Director of The Miller Center for Interreligious Learning and Leadership.
