OBJECTIVES:

The conference theme reflects a global social need: diversity in the current era, represents a fundamental aspect of all societies and aims, also the differences between people as individuals, and those of various groups. The existence of multiple identities, values, traditions, customs and different ways of relating between individuals or groups, necessarily require addressing education and society from an intercultural perspective. This represents a new challenge and a condition for social cohesion that is based on cultivating the mutual respect and understanding between individuals and between groups. Engaging in intercultural interactions is inevitable, and more, can provide both a knowledge and cultural enrichment. Without mutual understanding, differences may generate conflicts which, if not resolved in a peaceful way, may degenerate into human rights violations.

Defining the specific elements of intercultural education. It is proposed a psychological and pedagogical approach of the cultural differences, strategy whereby are taken into account the spiritual diversities or others (the difference of gender, social or economic difference etc.), avoiding as far as possible, the risks arising from inequal exchange between cultures or, worse, the trends to hierarchy of cultures.

Art is part of the cultural background of a society. It will explore how art can contribute either to eliminate conflicts arising from diversity or, conversely, can incite them.

Education in general and especially arts education, provide effective means of addressing cultural diversities, helping to shape the personality of young people in the sense of "acceptance and participation", "cohabitation learning - learning to live together", avoiding "stereotypes and prejudices ". We will highlight the crucial role of education in proposing solutions for the promotion of democracy and interculturalism – multiculturalism values.

There will be analyzed not only the basic elements of culture of a people but also its permeability to external influences, its ability to tolerate and accept the different elements from their own specificities, which are inevitable processes in contemporary society. This will include new concepts such as "intercultural communication skills", effective interaction in "intercultural contexts" etc.

We will highlight the link that exists between works of art, their creators and the cultural context that generate them. Through his works, the artist expresses not only his personal anxieties or emotional ardent feelings but also, reflects a conscious level of the social group, being himself adapted to human values, characteristic of the era and society to which he belongs.

Papers can present issues addressing the multicultural interactions, be interpreted in terms of psychological, pedagogical, social, cultural or artistic dimension. Are invited to participate teachers and researchers, psychologists, psychotherapists, and students interested in this topic. The papers will be published in a collective volume with academic recognition. We offer nominal Diploma of participation.
