Over the last seven (well, really eight at this point) weeks, we have explored music for peace through the lens of the northern Uganda group Music for Peace (MfP).

On behalf of MfP and its members, we would like to thank you for your lively contributions to this discussion and for openly sharing your reflections, experiences and insights with the T:AP network.

To follow the work of MfP going forward, you are invited to ‘Like’ us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/mfpuganda and bookmark our website, http://www.mfpuganda.org.

If you or your colleagues are interested in facilitating a similar series related to the arts and peacebuilding, please write to Olivier Urbain (email available upon request).

Also, don’t forget to email Lindsay your abstract if you’d like to be considered for African Conflict and Peacebuilding Review’s upcoming special issue on the arts and peacebuilding in Africa. You can access the flyer at http://www.jstor.org/userimages/ContentEditor/1391613171058/ACPR_CFP_flyer.pdf.  The deadline for abstract submission is March 15, 2014.

In peace,
Lindsay McClain Opiyo and Jeff Korondo
