October 24-28, 2011
The Northeastern University Humanities Center’s Artists and Practitioners in Residence Program presented Barbara Gottschalk, co-founder of Seeds of Peace, for a week of panel discussions, forums, and workshops. Bobbie was a panelist in the “Identity Development through Play,” “Skill Building for Facilitating Dialogue and Conflict Resolution,” and “Issues of Immigration in Today’s America” panel discussions, and she also led a grant writing workshop on October 27. Seeds of Peace’s Mission is to help young people from regions of conflict develop the leadership skills necessary to advance reconciliation and coexistence. High school students from Israel/Palestine, Egypt, Pakistan, and India come together for a three week long camp in Maine to see what peaceful coexistence looks like and understand one another as human beings.
