2013 Conflict Resolution Symposium


Join new and seasoned Conflict Resolution practitioners, artists and community activists, as well as undergraduate and graduate students as they network, discuss significant trends of the field, and meet and mentor emerging leaders. This year's theme is: "Getting to Peace: Using the Arts to Manage Conflict." Participants will be discussing a number of exciting creative problem solving methods and will have the opportunity to view art and hear from artists who work to bring peace. We hope that everyone present will leave the symposium empowered to integrate their creative spirit into the conflict management process!
