Abstract

This paper seeks to explore the intersection of mediation and artistic and embodied practices used in peacebuilding contexts, particularly applied theatre, by describing the theoretical underpinnings of both and examining their combined practical application. We will do this in part by examining findings from a workshop utilizing applied theatre techniques to engage mediators in discussion on 1) systems of professional support and 2) combining more artistic and embodied approaches to their own work. Overall workshop findings indicate that mediators are receptive and interested in using more embodied and non-verbal approaches within their practice.
