AFAC 'Why Culture?' Video Contest
Make an argument for why culture matters.
All Ages

Due November 22nd, 2013 - Why does culture matter? How does it matter? What role does culture play in our lives, as individuals, and as members of a community? Some of our most profound, invigorating, and provocative moments are experienced while we live art or take part in a cultural event. And yet, it is no easy task to name why culture is important and why we need to give it our full support.

There are some who believe that arts and culture address the burning and relevant issues of the day while others hold arts and culture as a space apart, not to be limited by temporal reality and the pressures of current event. Some value culture as an important part of economic development while others say it is a stand-alone unquantifiable human activity. Some highlight art as a reflection of community while others insist that art is an individual expression of universal value, not to be categorized by collective or tribal labels. The intriguing pull of arts and culture is an open discussion … Why is culture important to you?

The Arab Fund for Arts and Culture (AFAC) invite you to create a 2 minute video that delivers a concept on why culture matters.
