Arts groups

Art is a powerful way of talking about difficult subjects and making them accessible to different groups of people who may not otherwise engage.

Consider artistic ways to hold an event.  Dance, music, poetry, and photography create a unique element to any memorial event.  Try holding a poetry slam as a way to express the emotions felt at Srebrenica or read out a poem about Srebrenica  which has already been written. Creative workshops based on lessons from Srebrenica are excellent – creating your own version of the Srebrenica flower and write messages of peace on the petals or hold a photography exhibition, either using some already available photos or using your own photos from Srebrenica.
