Why is it important?

We examine how reconciliation might occur through a collective interest in and inquiry into an art form artistic, cultural, and social value and meanings to both parties. We discuss how collaborative arts strategies afforded discussions and pathways amongst participants towards individual and collective reconciliation concerning cultural heritage.


Cultural heritage is the collective identity that has a role and function in state life. Often cultural heritage becomes a conflict issue that can trigger hatred between neighboring countries. Therefore, efforts to reconcile by discussing the noble cultural values of the nation must continue to be voiced and advanced so that the next generation can respect each other.
