Peacebuilding through the Arts 

“The point is, art never stopped a war. . . That was never its function. Art cannot change events. But it can change people. It can affect people so that they are changed - they then act in a way that may affect the course of events. . . by the way they behave, the way they think."


LEONARD BERNSTEIN, composer and conductor (1918-1990)
