Facts you need to know about ARENA: Community Theatre and Public Art project
The three-year project “ARENA: Community Theatre and Public Art” was launched in 2015 by Armenian NGO Peace Dialogue and its German partner OWEN e.V. The project is aimed at improving the impact of peace building on community and regional levels through developing relevant pro-active strategies for community based peace building and creating a safe and supportive network for civil society groups from South Caucasus, Russian Federation and Ukraine.
The project strives to empower civil society groups from the above-mentioned post-Soviet/Eastern Partnership (EaP) countries to work together on strategies and methodologies that they can use in community work. The ARENA-project created a safe space for dialogue, mutual learning and ongoing educational activities for a group of participants who are motivated to work on suitable and sustainable strategies for community-based peace building.
