The report of the Salzburg Global session The Art of Resilience: Creativity, Courage and Renewal is now available online to read, download and share.

The 2017 session, which is part of Salzburg Global Seminar’s long-running series on Culture, Arts and Society, was held from February 7 to 12. Hailing from 21 countries, the 49 Fellows included creative entrepreneurs, artists, politicians, law enforcement officials, environmentalists, social scientists, media analysts, and cultural and community leaders.

The session tackled the polarizing challenges that art and the cultural sector face. Participants were invited to explore creative ways in which they can inspire and strengthen their communities and societies at large to courageously respond to sources of violence and disruption. Fellows concluded the session by highlighting the importance of the involvement of arts organizations and artists in multi-sectoral discussions and policy developments in order to find solutions for global challenges that plague our world today.

The session report, written by rapporteur Margaux Portron, summarizes the topics discussed and the several themes that were examined, including refugees, migration and integration; indigenous communities; climate resilience; urban upheaval; social injustice; post-conflict settings, reconciliation and renewal; and cultural heritage and resilience.
