This award winning project from the University of Manchester supports artists and creative communities living in sites of conflict to build powerful networks, create social change through creativity and demonstrate the value of the arts to public space, public life and public debate.

In Place of War has developed a ground-breaking creative entrepreneurial programme to be certified by The University of Manchester and delivered for free to local young people in communities in some of the most under-resourced parts of the world. In these communities with little access to education, offering a free creative entrepreneurial programme with the certification of the University would provide transformative opportunities for up to 5,000 young people in each community every year.
