EDUC-ACTORS: FROM CONTEXT TO TEXT
THE ARTS AS GENERATORS OF A CULTURE OF PEACE
A Peace, Conflict Transformation, Social Justice and Global Citizenship educational global initiative, informed by the Arts, which is understood as a multi-faceted communicational language which allows us to learn from the vision that emerges from individual and collective subjectivities.
This educational initiative outlines and proposes education through artistic language and first-hand experience, in order to both learn and teach in order to critically dismantle a homogeneous and homogenized vision of the world. This is done by presenting a wide range of effective practices regarding the use of art and also by understanding the unique dual praxis characteristic of art as aesthetic and creative and as social-political sensibility.
There is a need of increasing arts and culture education to enhance technical excellence and to promoting human rights, expanding the acceptance of equality and diversity, and recognizing complexity and layers of meaning.
