Knowing Ways

An international conference organised in collaboration with: Amnesty International, North Edinburgh Arts, The University of Glamorgan & The George Ewart Evans Storytelling Centre, The Institute of International Health & Development, The University of Glasgow Business School, The Learning for Democracy network, Intellect publishers and Creative Scotland.

In the face of increasing and ever-changing social, political and economic pressures and crises in diverse societies, practitioners in the visual and performing arts have produced a growing range of approaches through which ordinary citizens use the arts to explore and express their situations, challenging the structures and people who limit their development.   This conference brings together a wide range of practitioners from the Americas, Europe, Asia and Africa to share experiences and ideas.

Katarzyna Kosmala has contributed to the jubilee Special Edition of the international Journal of Arts & Communities in partnership with Amnesty International.

The conference Knowing Ways will launch a Special Edition of the International Journal of Arts & Communities devoted to Arts & Human Rights, in partnership with Amnesty International to celebrate its 50th Anniversary.
