Peace Education through the Arts. Peace Education Miniprints, No. 89.
This paper explores the role the arts can play in peace education, an area of interest that has received little attention. Peace education is usually integrated into other content areas such as social studies, history, language, or science. The booklet emphasizes the development of imagination in art education. Students can be brought to envision previously unimagined possibilities to creatively visualize preferable worlds and thus be empowered to ponder and work for alternatives to violence and war in conflict situations.
