The Robert Bosch Stiftung was part of the driving force to set up the 2014 years Annual General Assembly and Conference of the European Foundation Centre in Sarajevo. During the opening plenary, conference participants were deeply impressed by a short film about the work about the Global Arts Corps, created and directed by Michael Lessac.

The Global Arts Corps uses the transformative power of theatre to bring people together from opposite sides of violent conflict in post-conflict areas around the world.
Their first production, Truth in Translation, was inspired by the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission. It poses the question: "Can we forgive the past to survive the future?"
The Global Arts Corps is now working in Cambodia, the North of Ireland, and The Balkans.
Michael Lessac is an award-winning theatre, film, and television director. A documentary film on The Truth in Translation project, entitled "A Snake Gives Birth To A Snake", will premiere at an International Film Festival in 2014. Show less
