​PRIO Centre on Culture and Violent Conflict (CCC) organized the second seminar in the series Art, Peace and Conflict: Conversations with Artists on 20 March. Photographer Iffit Qureshi and PRIO researcher Marta Bivand Erdal engaged in a conversation on how art and research can contribute to creating more inclusive societies and shared reflections about what inspires them to do work exploring diversity and nationhood. Cindy Horst moderated the conversation. Iffit Qureshi also presented her photography project Humans of Oslo.

Art, Peace and Conflict: Conversations with Artists is a seminar series organized by the PRIO Centre on Culture and Violent Conflict. Conflict is constructed, understood, justified, organized and mediated through culture. In order to defuse and prevent conflicts, we need to understand how people imbue them with meaning. The seminar series aims to explore the role of art in this meaning-making process at different phases of conflict and war. The seminars consist of conversations between artists and academics, as well as the artists presenting from their work. The next seminar will be announced soon.
