War Stories, Peace Stories Symposium: April 11

Join us in New York on April 11th for the War Stories, Peace Stories Symposium. This symposium, a project of Peace Direct and Spectrum Media, brings together filmmakers, reporters and peacebuilders for a lively discussion of media and conflict.

We all know that news and films influence peace processes and can help reduce or inflame violent conflict. How can we change the narrative to help improve lives? Speakers include award-winning authors Alexis Okeowo and Sebastian Junger, along with journalists and peacebuilders working on the frontlines of conflict.  Okeowo is staff writer at The New Yorker and author of A Moonless, Starless Sky: Ordinary Women and Men Fighting Extremism In Africa. Melanie Greenberg will deliver opening remarks.  See the full program. We hope you will join us!
