The Indra Congress is a growing, global network of young people, artists, educators and others who share a commitment to the development of the arts as a crucial resource for peace building and the non-violent transformation of conflict.
Our vision is to use the language of the arts to challenge stereotypes, prejudices, inequalities and destructive myths, to build bridges, to promote empathy and to help build positive relationships across perceived boundaries and barriers.
First Act Youth Theatre based in the Waterside area of the city has played a huge part in the Indra programme over the last four years. In July 2013, First Act will be playing host to the next international congress at the Playhouse Theatre. Full program of events will be made available closer to the time.
