Between October 2020 and March 2021, CSVR hosted an online symposium entitled 'Blended Voices: Building an Understanding of Torture, War Trauma and Violence Through an African Lens'. The Blended Voices symposium emerged from the extensive work being done on torture, war trauma and violence throughout the continent, and the desire to provide a platform for African voices to share their experiences and learnings related to trauma, healing and resilience. The symposium sought to capture the diversity of the continent, and panellists themselves were of diverse African nationalities, races, genders and ages, but had all worked on the continent and were able to centre the continent, Africa's people and their experiences with violence across time.
