The Centre for Educational Research and Development at the Paro College of Education, Royal University of Bhutan is hosting the 7th International art in early childhood conference from 15-18 April 2017. The overarching theme of the conference is ‘What is art for?’ Close to 200 international and national participants will deliberate on how art in early childhood - 1) supports a more equitable, caring and balanced society; 2) preserves and promotes our cultural and spiritual heritage; 3) can raise young children’s awareness of their environment and its care through eco-friendly behaviours, ecological knowledge, environmental policies, waste management, afforestation ; and 4) creates contexts for freedom of thought and speech, freedom from discrimination, emotional balance and mental health.
