Global Mennonite Peacebuilding Conference and Festival from June 9 to 12 2016
Mennonites are known across the globe for their historic peace positions and, more recently, for proactive conflict transformation and peacebuilding activity.  This conference and festival will bring together academics, practitioners, artists, and church workers from around the world, to dialogue and reflect on Mennonite peacebuilding accomplishments, failures, challenges, and opportunities in varied international settings, past and present. Its purpose is: to explore traditions and contemporary expressions of Anabaptist/Mennonite peace beliefs and practices; to bring together academics and practitioners to learn from each other; to give expression to peacebuilding ideals through the arts; to assess and re-envision Mennonite peacebuilding practise.
