In 1999, the Director-General of UNESCO issued an appeal for the promotion of arts education and creativity at school as part of the construction of a culture of peace, stating:
At a time when family and social structures are changing, with often adverse effects on children and adolescents, the school of the twenty first century must be able to anticipate the new needs by according a special place to the teaching of artistic values and subjects in order to encourage creativity, which is a distinctive attribute of the human species. CREATIVITY IS OUR HOPE. (unesco,1999)
In response to this appeal, UNESCO organized a series of regional meetings of experts on the arts in education to examine the possibilities for promoting the arts in education in each part of the world. One of these meetings, focusing on arts education in Latin America and the Caribbean was held in Uberaba, Brazil in 2001. The chapters in this volume were originally presented at the Brazilian meeting although most have been substantially revised for publication.
