The International Drama/Theatre and Education Association announces a new international arts initiative, the “Land and Home” project. The “Land and Home” project is open to all members of IDEA. The project’s focus is on the changing relationship between human beings and the land, their dwelling place. What are the issues and challenges we all face as we move into the twenty first century? To foster regional and international arts collaboration between a variety of populations and groups on this central theme, experienced artists, teachers, directors, film makers, choreographers, poets, musicians, and environmentalists who are interested in this topic are invited to develop opportunities for communities of people within their respective countries to express their hopes and concerns for the use of the land as it is manifested in their localities. The goal is to provide a means of expression to communities whose voices may not be heard through the global media and who may not usually express themselves through artistic means.
