Creativity and Arts Education Petition UNESCO
The member states of UNESCO, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, are meeting over the next couple of weeks at the General Conference.
UNESCO’s work is prioritised into 48 different areas, of which the creativity program (under which arts education falls) is currently ranked at the very bottom and is in danger of being eliminated. If this occurs, many arts education programs funded by UNESCO throughout the world will be dropped.
Concerned arts educators are urged to sign this petition online as soon as possible, to keep creativity and arts education on the list of UNESCO’s major priorities.
