---------------------------------------------------------------- CULTURE in MOTION: Practice in Contemporary International Development The New School, New York December 1 & 2, 2006 Arts, Culture and Communities in International Development (ACCID)* will host a conference on the intersection of international development and cultural practice called Culture in Motion: Practice in Contemporary International Development on December 1st and 2nd, 2006 at The New School. Almost a decade after the UN World Decade for Cultural Development (1988-1997), we still face common questions. Why and how does culture matter in development? Is culture marginal or essential for economic and/or community development? Can increased attention to culture have a positive impact on global poverty-reduction efforts? Culture in Motion will attempt to address a number of needs and questions as well as provoking thought and offering opportunities for engagement on cultural practices in the development field. There is a great need to "keep the flame" of culture and development alive, and Culture in Motion will invite multi-directional dialogues and collaborative engagement between students, thinkers, academics and practitioners on the differing meanings and roles of 'culture' that is deployed in the field of development. Culture in Motion is action based and unconventional in how it asks everyone to participate by expressing yourself; it is education through conversation that Culture in Motion is looking to achieve. Check the schedule below for times and locations.come and go as you please. *ARTS, CULTURE, and COMMUNITIES in INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT (ACCID) at the New School Graduate Program in International Affairs (GPIA) works to foster awareness of multifaceted phenomena of culture among a new generation of development practitioners. Recognizing culture as a dynamic and transformative force, we seek to explore culture as an indicator and facilitator of development, and its role as an active agent of social transformation.
