Toolkit: Systems-based Approach to Transforming Complex Conflicts

Building on the knowledge of Acting Together, IMPACT is developing a novel toolkit that illustrates how systems and complexity theories can and do inform arts- and culture-based works. The idea is to strengthen insights from conflict transformation in designing, implementing, assessing and advocating for arts-based peacebuilding work.

The tool will be tested out with a small international group of practitioners, who would 1) learn about this approach, 2) be supported to design modest interventions, 3) implement their designs; 4) describe and assess their work; and 5) give IMPACT feedback about how to improve the new toolkit element.
