An excerpt from the Acting Together Toolkit. To learn more about Acting Together Project, visit http://www.actingtogether.org.

The Acting Together project is a collaboration between Brandeis University's Peacebuilding and the Arts program (http://www.brandeis.edu/ethics/peaceb...) and Theatre Without Borders (http://www.theatrewithoutborders.com). The project documents peacebuilding performance, highlighting artists, peacebuilders, and community leaders from every continent whose rituals and theatrical works speak truth to power and support communities to mourn losses and build bridges across differences.

In the fall of 2011, the project launched a feature-length documentary ("Acting Together on the World Stage"); a toolkit of videos and printed guides to aid educators, practitioners and policy-makers; and the first of two volumes of an anthology entitled "Acting Together: Performance and the Creative Transformation of Conflict."

From the boundary of human suffering and human possibility emerges a story that offers hope to our war-weary world. It is a story that arises on a contested boundary, but not the kind of boundary that divides people at war. It is rather the border between the violence and inequity of our current condition and the more just and peaceful world we seek, terrain where artists and peacebuilders engage people in creative acts of courage and moral imagination.
