Storytelling for Peace and Renewing Community (SPARC)

The goal of SPARC is to promote knowledge and skills about innovative story-based approaches to conflict resolution, peace-building, and community building; and to serve as a crossroads for peace-builders, storytellers and other artists, educators, and other people working to promote constructive cultural change in their societies and/or in conflict zones. One of the most prominent community engagement activities of the Mauro Institute is the Winnipeg International Story Telling Festival.
