Meet a very talented and inspiring artist and peace practitioner, Mr Guido Ripamonte. Guido is in Costa Rica this week for the San Jose Film Festival, which opened with the Colombian film Mateo – a film largely based on the true story of the transformative impact of a community theatre and arts group, which Guido directs, and the contributions of community-level projects to the overall peace process in Colombia.

This will be an informal space for dialogue and reflection on the themes of art (especially theatre and film), peace building from below, and the importance of engaging the energy and creativity of youth in transformative change on the community level.
