Sanja Krsmanović Tasić on how arts education can be seen as peace education.

Sanja Krsmanović Tasić is the president of CEDEUM, a youth theater company in Belgrade, Serbia. Throughout her career she had many roles, starting out as a dancer, and slowly moving on to directing and founding many initiatives for theatre and dance.

In this conversation we hear Sanja tell us about the importance of having mentors who help you grow in your professional work.

And, as she makes clear, she was born in Yugoslavia and now lives in Serbia. She reminisces on working as a dancer during the war in Yugoslavia, how she missed having words as a dancer to voice her opinion. This was her motivation to go into theatre.

‘We see arts education also as peace education. If you change one person, on child. Give them the freedom to visualize that another world is possible, it’s a good start.’

Listen to this very personal account of an inspiring career.
