The talk will explore the origins of In Place Of War as an AHRC funded research project and examine its evolution as a charity/independent organisation which supports the work of artist communities in sites of conflict and protracted conflict across three pillars: the development of cultural spaces, education and enterprise and artist collaboration, underpinned by research. In charting this development, Ruth and Teresa will provide an overview of IPOW core work in Africa, Latin America and the Middle East, outlining how projects are developed in collaboration with practitioners in the IPOW network. The talk will also offer insights into approaches and considerations to collaborating with communities in the field, how research projects are conceived and methodologies adopted. The talk will conclude by drawing on current research and core field activities that focus on addressing urgent issues as identified in the grassroots communities in the IPOW network.

Teresa Ó Brádaigh Bean is the Director of Research and Education at In Place of War and an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Manchester. As a former teacher, she wrote the awarding winning CASE (Creative and Social Entrepreneur Programme)an entry level program designed to develop skills, networks and knowledge of the creative and social enterprise, for artists, creative practitioners and community leaders in sites of conflict and protracted crisis. In addition to this, Teresa leads on research activities at In Place of War. Building on her postgraduate studies and field work with IPOW , her research interests include, art based social movements, in particular hip hop in Colombia, the role of community arts based education in sites of conflict and grassroots arts based peacebuilding. She is currently working on a collaborative AHRC funded research project between IPOW , University of Manchester and Durham entitled ‘The Art of Peace: Interrogating community devised arts based peace-building’.

CEO of In Place of War, Ruth Daniel has led a diverse range of arts and peace-building initiatives across the globe. She has developed and implemented over a hundred cultural programmes in sites of conflict and disadvantage such as war zones, post war zones and areas of economic deprivation. She prepared numerous successful funding applications, recently receiving £1million AHRC research grant for a 3 year programme that will explore how grassroots organisations can create social change using art.
