Conflict Resolution in Jordan

Spectrum Media’s long-term interest in conflict resolution education and peace building began in Jordan. We collaborated with the Performing Arts Center of the Noor Al Hussein Foundation and the Jordanian Ministry of Education on the creation of the Culture of Peace program. Together, we developed and implemented a traveling theater program and a daylong educational program that used live performance, experiential learning and group activities to introduce children to new ideas about resolving conflict. The team performed for over 25,000 fifth and sixth grade children over a four-year period using puppets, songs, skits and interactive activities. The program also included the production of a popular nationally televised TV special called Journey to Kanafeesh.
