Upcoming USIP Events

April 28, 2015
U.S. Institute of Peace
2301 Constitution Ave. NW
Washington, DC

From Iraq to Burma, from Peru to Yemen, from Nicaragua to Nepal, the personal stories of widows, children, workers, and soldiers often are lost in the cacophony of war.  Please join the U.S. Institute of Peace on Tuesday, April 28, for a discussion and launch of "Speaking Their Peace: Personal Stories from the Frontlines of War and Peace," a book that tells the extraordinary stories of "ordinary" people from eleven conflict zones. NPR's Michel Martin moderates a discussion with the book's author, Colette Rausch, and two members of the team that captured these memorable interviews.

April 29, 2015
House of Sweden
2900 K Street NW
Washington, DC

What roles do media and the arts play in peacebuilding? Can theatre inspire nonviolent action to resolve conflict, transforming individuals from victims of violence to protagonists actively seeking to end it? The Embassy of Sweden, The Power of 7 team, and the U.S. Institute of Peace are proud to present an interactive discussion on the use of the arts and media to create social change. This event will be held at House of Sweden.
