The potential of Education, Arts and Culture in Development Processes and Actions


We have the pleasure of announcing the start of the online enrollment period for the course The potential of Education, Arts and Culture in Development Processes and Actions, which will take place between June 22 and October 28, 2015.

This course provides a general vision regarding the relationship between culture and development, placing special emphasis on the education and training of young people as indispensable factors for the strengthening of communities and their development. The goal of the course is to transmit some precise knowledge as to how the relationship between education and culture is shaped to serve development. Furthermore, the course offers practical tools for the agents of the sector of culture and cooperation.

In this sense, the general objectives are as follows:

  • To raise awareness in the cultural perspective for development, the potential of arts and culture in general as driving forces and facilitators behind community development.
  • To provide a conceptual, theoretical and normative framework in the subjects of development, education and culture.
  • To promote development focused on the strengthening of capabilities.
  • To highlight and add value to the experiences achieved within a certain context (in this case, South Africa) to learn from practice.
  • To systematize a work methodology and offer tools that allow agents to develop and improve the efficacy of their actions within the scope of cooperation for development.

    This course is especially for:
  • Coordinators that provide capacity-building for young people through arts and culture in South Africa.
  • The team of Humana People to People, who would like to deepen the cultural perspective of development through reflections, conceptual tools and methodology.
  • People from different organizations and institutions that develop in an area of cultural management, international cooperation, artistic education or community development.
  • Any person who, with or without prior experience, would like to focus their professional practice on the field of education, culture and development.
