Culture+Conflict is a not-for-profit agency focusing on art produced in, or in response to, conflict and post-conflict situations across the world.

Our overall aims are to increase the involvement of the arts in conflict and post-conflict situations, to build greater understanding of their value, and to foster the exchange of knowledge and perspectives with other sectors also engaged in conflict and post-conflict work: the political and diplomatic community, NGOs, international development agencies, academia, the media, and the many peace-building initiatives worldwide. We believe the arts have a vital role to play, not least in their unique ability to communicate the powerful personal and political issues of conflict.

C+C was founded in 2011 by Michaela Crimmin, Peter Jenkinson OBE and Jemima Montagu. We are a registered Community Interest Company: company no. 7476509.


We offer advice and in kind support to artists, writers, performers and other cultural practitioners in conflict areas, connecting them and their work to international networks and platforms. We also broker connections between international agencies and organisations that operate development programmes in areas of conflict or post-conflict but are not engaged with the cultural community.

We regret that we cannot provide financial support, nor are we a campaigning organisation.
