Saraswathi Sangeetha Archana

Saraswathi Sangeetha Archana is held on the first Saturday of each month at the University of Peradeniya premises. It is attended by a limited crowd of traditional music lovers from across the country and serves as a platform for artists to share their life experiences and thoughts. Its performances are threefold including Vadanaya: playing of musical instruments, Gayanaya: singing, and Narthanaya: dancing

These monthly sessions of Sangeetha Archana constitute opportunities for informal face-to-face interactions between various artists and music lovers, enhancing human relationships and promoting collective hospitality. The blend of Sri Lankan and Indian music traditions give space for learning, teaching, training, and practicing of these traditional arts, in addition to building reciprocity and intercultural understanding. Furthermore, it integrates artists and music lovers from various layers and demarcations of society such as class, gender, and ethnicity by enabling a harmonious footing of equality through one common spiritual and musical experience.


Positive Peace Path

Peace education has to communicate both values supportive of peace and non-violence, and the reasoning and interpersonal skills required for non-violent conflict resolution. Rather than introducing formal instruction in “peace science”, teachers may find it more effective to introduce the subject informally with examples that illustrate the value of non-violence, and examples of the ways in which violent conflict can be avoided or resolved. Herein, it is emphasized that peace education can be introduced effectively by merging it with the existing education system.

A key action in promoting peace is education. Teachers are more than educators; they are mentors, event coordinators, monitoring and evaluation experts, curriculum specialists, conflict negotiators, administrators, and social change makers. One role of teachers that may be overlooked is that of a peacebuilder. With ongoing global conflict, it is imperative for teachers to expose their students to those global issues and incite motivation in their students to be advocates for peace, both in their local communities and globally.
