Humanities, Arts and Society
A project by UNESCO-MOST – C.I.P.S.H – G.C.A.C.S. – Mémoire de l’Avenir
The mission of the “Humanities, Arts and Society” Project is to demonstrate the impact of the arts on society, promote global understanding and collaboration and establish a worldwide movement of artists.
Artists from all regions of the world must develop multidisciplinary cooperation with fields of research and the sciences, in the following spheres: The arts as tools in innovation, invention, evolution, and progress; The arts as tools in education, knowledge, and awareness; The arts as tools in practical and sustainable development; The arts as tools in critical thinking, revolution, and resistance; The arts as tools to fight all forms of discrimination.
“The arts do not replace science and are not reducible to the concerns of the sciences, but they participate in the process of developing the creativity, the imagination of new futures, of diversity and of critical thinking.”
Prof. Luiz Oosterbeek
Secretary General of CIPSH
