The CommonVisions Project: Photography as conflict transformation

Presented by: Chuck Egerton, Randolph Community College
Presented at: 5th International Conference on Conflict Resolution Education
Date of Session: March 16, 2012

Session Description: This workshop will unpack an arts based anti-racism curriculum known as CommonVisions. Participants engage individually and collectively in a creative photographic process to explore new understandings of reality for themselves, the group, and the community. CommonVisions has demonstrated that utilizing a visual/creative modality can be a powerful catalyst for positive social change. Participants will learn the logic model and structure of the curriculum, see examples of participants work, and be challenged to consider ways to introduce the arts into their own work of transforming conflict and promoting human oneness.
