    "FriedensKunst" - Symposium for interreligious peace work 2022

    For about three weeks now, the war in Ukraine has been shaking Europe. The Russian attack makes it clear that peace is not a state, but an ongoing process of dealing constructively with conflict. Approaches to non-violent conflict resolution from the field of art and culture are presented at Mission 21's current symposium "FriedensKunst" (PeaceArt). In presentations and workshops, experts with extensive experience show how artistic work can be used to promote peace in international conflicts.

    The symposium will take place on Friday, March 25, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. as a face-to-face event at the Missionshaus in Basel. The connection via Zoom is possible after prior registration.
