In Place of War

In Place of War (IPOW) is an international arts organisation emerging from research at The University of Manchester (UoM) that investigated arts practices in places of war and conflict.

Building from the model established in the original research project, IPOW trains artists, supports the infrastructures that sustain their work, and provides an international platform to showcase their art. From the provision of equipment, creative spaces and the means to maintain professional networks, to the training of young artists in Creative Entrepreneurial programmes, IPOW now pioneers responsive impact, bringing benefit to thousands of artists and other individuals.

Impact highlights include:

  • bringing together of an all women ‘super-group’;
  • providing £400,000 of music equipment to transform music venues across the West Bank;
  • training over 1,000 young artists, 40% of whom have set up businesses in Latin America and Africa.
