Today we are facing unprecedented crises: climate change, COVID-19, social diversity and equity issues and so on. As research has demonstrated the social value, impact and role of arts education in various ways, we would like to gather artists and scholars to discuss how principles and practices of arts education can contribute profoundly to resolving the social and cultural challenges.

With these tasks in front of us, we cordially invite you to participate in the 4th UNESCO-UNITWIN SYMPOSIUM, an international symposium on the theme: Arts Education in and through a Time of Crisis. The symposium will be held online on 24 - 26 May 2021.

If you have any questions, please email us at
