The War Art Reporting and Memory (WARM) Foundation and the Post-Conflict Research Center (PCRC) are seeking applicants for their annual WARM Academy, a multidisciplinary, educational and training program that focuses on developing participants’ knowledge, understanding, and critical skills in the fields of peacebuilding and conflict transformation. As such, WARM and PCRC would appreciate the opportunity to use your platform to share the word about this opportunity, as we feel that your audience of engaged youth might take an interest in applying.
Taking place during Sarajevo’s annual WARM Festival, the Academy will feature a series of masterclasses, workshops, and interactive panel discussions that present cutting-edge approaches and best practices currently used across the globe to address issues related to contemporary conflict and post-conflict transitions. The series will be delivered by world-class practitioners, academics, artists, and experts from the fields of media, transitional justice, historical memory preservation, journalism, art, violence prevention, human rights, and other related fields.
This call to apply is open to students, researchers, artists, photographers, academics, journalists, and anyone with an interest in conflict transformation, peacebuilding, human rights, transitional justice, and other areas related to conflict and post-conflict transitions. Applicants must be 18+ years of age and possess advanced English language skills as the working language of the Academy is English. There are only 35 spots available (including 15 scholarships for Western Balkan residents), so applicants should apply today for their chance to be part of this year’s program!
