SYNOPSIS

‘Today we are able to witness some of the world’s major heritage sites and rich cultural legacies: remnants from diverse world civilizations; from Machu Picchu to the Ancient Pyramids, from the Colosseum to the Parthenon, Angkor Wat and the Taj Mahal. […] Culture and the arts play a vital role in generating intellectual inspiration, reinventing traditions and generating social cohesion. Arts and culture shape our future; but moreover it is also often a solution to social problems within communities throughout the world. […] Artists have been instrumental in redefining development in addressing difficult social issues. Arts engage the public to think creatively and thus generates inspiration and innovation for development on a broader social level.’

– Boris Dittrich
