The Art in Peacemaking: A Guide to Integrating Conflict Resolution Education Into Youth Arts Program
This 2002 publication is the result of a four-year collaboration between the Arts Endowment and The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention.

The National Center for Conflict Resolution Education developed and provided the training. This publication provides background on the partnership and the rationale behind blending the arts with conflict resolution. It details the nature of conflict and provides arts based activities and ideas for integrating the conflict resolution principles into all types of arts programs.

The Arts and Human Development: Framing a National Research Agenda for

In March 2011, the National Endowment for the Arts and the U.S.
Department of Health & Human Services hosted a first-of-its-kind event to
showcase and discuss recent research on the arts and human development.
The one-day forum examined the relationship between the arts and positive
health and educational outcomes at various segments of the lifespan—from
early childhood, to youth and adolescence, to older adult populations.
This white paper summarizes major themes from the forum, and highlights
related studies. It also makes recommendations toward establishing a
long-term federal partnership to promote research and evidence-sharing
nationwide. 38 pp.
