"land for peace": adocumentary short film about the peasants role in the colombian conflict and the peace process
Facilitator: Beatriz Castañeda Aller
Description: We rarely get to hear the stories that remain behind the violent history that Colombia seems to be condemned to export: the ones of the peasants stripped from land, the indigenous displaced from their millenary locations by extrativist and corporate interests, the human right leaders murdered... it is a mistake to run away from the look of a country that can only heal by deeping on the truth and by narrating himself. This is the main objective that this short film seeks, which is composed by the sum of different peasants stories but also the ones of human right leaders, academics, guerrilleros and political leaders. It is a seek for listening the intrahistory in order to get to know the history.

the origami art: cranes for peace. Peace studies and gender, from theory to practice.
Facilitators: Beatriz Castañeda Aller and María Alejandra Ortiz López
Description: the oorigami is an spiritual art with centuries of history. For those who practice origami, it means an intimate moment in which they enter in a mental process that brings them calm, patience and makes them more conscious of their presence in the universe. This favours, at the same time, the expressivity, the emotional relief, the attention, the self-awareness and the relaxation. All these concepts have a lot to do with peace culture. We have selected the crane because of its special symbology towards peace.
We will elaborate a collective mural with the thousand cranes we would have created during the conference to send a wish of peace. It will be held on the coffee space in the Doctoral School and Board of Trustess building.
