Culture in the Sudans has for some time been relegated to the scholarly margins, yet the expressive arts play an important role in inspiring reflection, challenging power, promoting identities and restoring individual and community morale. This panel will feature Ali Mahdi Nouri and John Martin, two prominent practitioners of theatre for social development, whose work with child soldiers and between victims and aggressors in Darfur and South Sudan respectively aims to facilitate social reintegration and to promote peace and reconciliation.

Speakers: Ali Mahdi Nour (Albuggaa Theatre Sudan, Unesco Artist for Peace), John Martin (PanArts, London)

Series: Sudan-South Sudan Series

Chair: Angela Impey (SOAS)

This event is part of the Centre of African Studies’ Sudan & South Sudan Series. Please refer to the CAS event page for information regarding more upcoming events part of this series.
