2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of World War I and the beginning of a nearly half a century of industrialized conflict. This program will continue Salzburg Global's series on "The Transformative Power of the Arts", supported through our long-standing partnership with the Edward T. Cone Foundation. It will explore the role that cultural institutions and the arts have played - and can play - in pre- and post-war situations, in reconciliation and forgiveness, in post-conflict society rebuilding, and in conflict prevention. The main goal of the program will be to engage international institutions and innovators working in the areas of peace-building and conflict prevention, including cultural institutions, policy makers, NGO leaders, scholars, artists and the media, to understand and map the unique and often underestimated role that 'soft power' can play in peace-building and post-conflict societies. The program is designed to lay the foundations for a five-year series focused on specific conflict/post-conflict regions.
Immediately before this session, a fee-based Arts and Leadership residential weekend workshop will be held in Salzburg, April 4 to 6, 2014.
