Arts education for transformation

This post comes to you from Cultura21

On the way to the forthcoming Rio+20, we would like to share with you this video by IDEA (International Drama Theatre and Education Association), which celebrates the 2010 World Congress on Arts Education. This video is one of the contributions of the Brazilian Network of Arteducators  (ABRA) to debates taking place on Culture and Sustainability  in the People´s Summit during Rio+20. The 2010 Congress was created by artists and arteducators from 60 countries to share pedagogies that nurture empathy,  solidarity, creative humanity, cooperation and democratic communities for sustainable futures.
