The Middle East is one of the most conflict-stricken regions in the world. For several years Clowns without Borders has worked in close collaboration with local artists from Syria, Palestine, Lebanon and Jordan, to promote peace and equality using creative arts. The results are clear - arts is essential to build resilience, networks and hope - keys to promote peace and equality.
Creative Arts for Peace and Equality is a project designed by Clowns Without Borders Sweden, financed by the Folke Bernadotte Academy. This Thursday we launch a final report collecting methods, stories and results from the program that over 2500 women and girls has undergone.
