Indra’s Net

Once upon a time the god Indra made a large net to cover the whole world. Each point of intersection consisted of a beautiful, precious pearl. None of the pearls existed by themselves except as a reflection of each other and of all the pearls in the net. In turn the whole net relied on each individual pearl for its existence.

The Mission of the Indra Congress

Information

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.

The aims of the Congress will be achieved through the development of a rolling programme of live regional, national and international Congress events, within a framework of ongoing grassroots activities, training, research and advocacy.

The underlying belief driving the Indra Congress is that the creative arts have a unique contribution to make towards conflict transformation. It is a belief grounded in the power of creativity, compassion and the needs and demands of a just society.

The Indra Congress and religion
January 13, 2016 By admin

I have been asked on a number of occasions if Indra is a religious organisation: here are some thoughts for the New Year. Although the Congress is guided by the spiritual, Buddhist metaphor of Indra’s Net, Indra is not a specifically religious organisation. The initial ARROW programme (Art: a Resource for Reconciliation Over the World) […]
