Art & Human Dignity: Human Rights and Healing Arts for a Culture of Peace

Directed by Guila Clara Kessous, UNESCO Artist for Peace

In partnership with the Global Peace Education Network (GPEN), Dr. Guila Clara Kessous is organising the forum “Art & Human Dignity: Human Rights and Healing Arts for a Culture of Peace”. The event held on World Art Day aims to examine the positive impact of the arts in promoting global peace, human rights, health, and well-being.

“The impact of art is underestimated today. We have a limited view of the artist as someone who produces beauty devoid of social conscience. In response, many artists decide to combine activism and art to become ‘artivists’ – offering their talents to alleviate suffering, promote peace and prevent war.”

Dr Guila Clara Kessous

UNESCO Artist for Peace – Ambassador for Peace of the Universal Circle of Ambassadors of Peace (Geneva)

 

This forum, aligned with UNESCO’s mandate to promote the arts as a bridge across cultures, ideologies, languages and geographies, reflects the crucial use of arts as an enabler for healing and social cohesion, contributing to consolidating a culture of peace.
