The Role of Art in Peacebuilding and Women’s Empowerment


On Wednesday, April 13, 2022, we learned how art plays a role in peacebuilding and how corporate appropriation of Amazigh art is undermining Women’s economic empowerment in Morocco.

- Houda Abadi, Transformative Peace
- Khadija El Barkaoui, Coelle Global
- Souad Laghssais, Rchima Design
- Karin Ryan, The Carter Center (moderator)

Music, poetry, graphic and cultural art play a vital role in community cohesion and well-being. Art is employed for social uplift, providing a vital entry point for women into the economy, and is also exploited by violent actors to foment conflict. The program will explores this topic and also address the challenge of corporate appropriation of Amazigh art in Morocco.

Coordinated by Joshua Griffin, MDP
