In name of the International Society for Education Through Art, InSEA I wish to congratulate KACES’s celebration of the 5th International Arts Education Week and reinforce KACES role in promoting excellency in arts education all over the world before and after Seoul Agenda for Arts education. We need to continue to cherish and develop art education in our educational systems, because the arts are a major domain of human experience. Through the arts students explore different ways of understanding the self and the others. The arts provide spaces to communicate, express and introspect, find personal and social meaning, explore and experiment the plurality of realities. Furthermore arts education have a special role to play in the education of XXI centuryin contributing to local and global awareness of cultural, environmental and humanitarian concerns.
