Context

The "Transmissions and Transformations: Learning through the Arts in Asia" symposium (New Delhi, 21-24 March, 2005) was convened in order discuss the uniquely Asian perspective of arts and Arts Education, and explored ways in which the arts can be better integrated within formal and informal educational systems in Asia.

This symposium also examined and discussed the document produced by the Office of the UNESCO Regional Advisor for Culture in Asia and the Pacific, the “Asia-Pacific Action Plan” (PDF, 332KB).

The Asia-Pacific Action Plan was produced following the recommendations of the "Measuring the Impact of Arts Education" symposium (Hong Kong, 2004) and describes a strategy to set up a series of Arts Education "Observatories" - clearinghouses for the collection, analysis, repackaging and dissemination of information about Arts Education in the Asia-Pacific region.
