A new Policy Brief on Arts Education in the CIS countries published

Within the framework of the UNESCO/IFESCCO Pilot Project “Arts education in the CIS Countries: Development of Creative Capacities in the XXI Century (2009-2014)” a new Policy Brief is published. This policy brief summarizes the results of researches conducted by groups of experts in Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, the Republic of Moldova, the Russian Federation, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan and Ukraine in 2009-2012, which allow to assess the current state and problems of arts education development in the Commonwealth countries and set strategic goals for its future development.

Arts education in the CIS countries is a unique phenomenon organically combining tradition and innovation, human and national values, all kinds and genres of arts and cultural practices, and - most importantly - goals of personal and social development.

Comparative research on the theory and practice of arts education in the CIS countries, conducted within the project “Arts education in the CIS countries: development of creative opportunities in the XXI century», with financial support from UNESCO office in Moscow and the Intergovernmental Foundation for Educational, Scientific and Cultural Cooperation of the CIS countries (IFESCCO), will help foster comprehension of the challenges of developing arts education programs in the CIS countries.

This policy brief is addressed to public and political leaders in the CIS countries who are responsible for defining strategy and tactics for national systems of arts education and also to representatives of the expert community - cultural and arts education professionals responsible for implementing creative, social and cultural initiatives aimed toward the humanization of social life and the spiritual and creative development of a person.
