Visualising Peace

Using film-making and art exhibitions to address the barriers young people face in engaging and influencing community members and policy makers.

In Visualising Peace, partner organisations UNM, the Kwetu Film Institute, and Never Again Rwanda are developing a participatory action research model that supports young participants to decode the barriers to their civic engagement, explore their political agency, and communicate their ambitions to community members and targeted policy makers.

The focus is on raising mental health awareness through youth-led arts exhibitions. The project will produce a set of films made in collaboration with young people at the Kwetu Film Academy, as well as young people previously involved in MAP Phase 1.

These films will be shared at a symposium with arts-based creations to innovatively communicate with civil society and policy makers.

The process will be captured in an academic article and the co-produced training manual.
