Arts for Community Development

This project examines the influential role the arts –from music to video games – play in sparking examination of social issues, engaging marginalized communities, and promoting cross-cultural understanding. Participants will explore how professional performing and visual artists, film and television makers, arts educators, and those involved in the arts mentor disenfranchised youth and minority groups and address social challenges. The program will allow participants to examine the influential role the arts play in advancing civil society and the creative economy. The project will also examine how intellectual property rights (IPR) protect artists’ profitability and preserve cultural heritage.

Countries visiting: Saudi Arabia
