The 52ND Session of the Commission for Social Development will host a panel to discuss the Role of Art and Education in the Reduction of Conflict and the Building of Community on Wednesday, February 19, 2014 at the United Nations in New York City.
This panel is sponsored by the American Psychological Association in collaboration with the Permanent Mission of El Savador to the United Nations, and features three projects that illustrate the role of art and education in helping reduce conflict and build community in different parts of the world.
Among the distinguished presenters are CCP board members: Dr. Marion Terenzio, Vice President of Academic Affairs, Bloomfield College and Suzanne Ishee, President, Center for Creative Placemaking, Member of Sustainable Jersey’s Arts Task Force
The Center for Creative Placemaking, in collaboration with Bloomfield College, builds communities through “creative place making,” by placing artists and art at the center of community planning. Leveraging the creative potential already present in a place by developing local talent and assets, increases the value of a community and the commitment to it, and convinces people that a place can have a different and better future.
