Culture for Sustainable and Inclusive Peace – Launch

March 8, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm

The Culture for Sustainable and Inclusive Peace Network Plus (CUSP) is a consortium of 12 partners working across 6 countries. Our research, split into three strands, will propel us to achieve two collective aims:

  1. Strengthening LMIC arts and cultural institutions/organisations to become a reference point for the identification and transformation of social conflict, including gender-based violence, coercion and injustice.
  2. Ensuring equal participation of women and girls, including in leadership roles, in artistic and cultural work for peacebuilding, whilst attending to environmental justice.

Our launch event will look at CUSP’s research, introduce the team and look ahead to future research and plans.

This event will take place over zoom, if you would like to attend please register here.
