Because, while a person is in front of a work of art, they live the aesthetic experience and can perceive things in an utterly new way. We should make the most of this potential that art from all times has.

In fact, we can promote the creation of an intercultural democratic and peaceful society through art education. As artworks are part of culture that allows us to have an in-depth understanding of our own culture and others, they can be useful to build bridges of peace and intercultural and fair understanding, to encourage love to one´s neighbor through empathy and respect among different cultures.
