Peace through Art and Sport
School Arts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v104 n3 p41 Nov 2004
Since September 11, 2001, our world has become increasingly divided. The escalation of religious, ethnic, and cultural conflicts is having a profound impact on the hearts and minds of the next generation. In this article, the author asserts that the arts are language-independent media for building bonds of friendship and communication among the world's children. Collectively the arts are a powerful catalyst for promoting peace, freedom, and cooperation. Likewise, sports are also a powerful tool for building peace. Sections include: (1) Peace and Children; (2) Art and Sport; (3) The Arts; and (4) Festivals and the Olympic Games.
