Africa and Beyond PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Africa and Beyond free pdf Africa and Beyond: Arts and Sustainable Development is a massive undertaking by thoughtful theorists and practitioners in the creative/cultural industry. The combined effect of the volume is to disabuse the fixed prevailing conception of the role of culture in society- a view that consigns the arts to the periphery of social life devoid of any meaningful contribution to the alleviation of poverty and general development. Contrary to this view, the volume presents a more comprehensive, meaningful, insightful set of perspectives and paradigms that ascribe agency to the creative/cultural products in all facets of human development.
