About Us

Global Arts Corps is a theatrical laboratory dedicated to the advancement of conflict transformation. The prototype for the Global Arts Corps is the original South African touring production of Truth in Translation. It began as a collaboration between an extraordinary company of South African actors and musicians, an American Director, contributing writers from both countries and a legendary South African musician/composer.

The production asked the question that Nelson Mandela asked of his country: 'can we forgive the past to survive the future?' and brought the story of the South African Truth and Reconciliation Commission into other areas of conflict around the world. www.truthintranslation.org Global Arts Corps brings together world-class artists from opposite sides of civil, religious, and racial conflict, who, together, create theatrical productions that tour the world's conflict zones to advance the cause of reconciliation.

As the numbers of productions grow, this expanding pool of international artists will become a traveling resource for training, education and reconciliation development in conflict zones across the world. The work will tell their nation's stories through world-class theatre, music, many languages, and shared humor.
