IDB invites Latin American and Caribbean artists to submit proposals for an exhibition about education in natural sciences and mathematics.
The Inter-American Development Bank´s Cultural Center and Education Division invite artists from Latin America and the Caribbean to submit artwork that seeks to explore, stimulate, and propose creative and artistic alternatives in the teaching of natural sciences and mathematics. The exhibition will be held in Washington at the IDB Headquarters, from June 7 to 11, 2010.
Through the hands and eyes of the region's artists, the Bank hopes to bring attention to mathematics and natural science as an essential foundation skill for our children.
The exhibition will launch a new IDB initiative focused on creating new policies that improve a child´s ability to reach his or hers full potential in math and natural science, between the pre-primary and the secondary levels. The seminar "An Even Start: Numeracy Education in Latin America and the Caribbean" will be held concurrently with the exhibition, with participation of experts in the subject and one of the exhibiting artists. The discussion will be organized around the presentation of an overview of the status of numeracy education in the region, as well as the results of three Bank-financed initiatives.
All artists born in Latin America and the Caribbean regardless of their current place of residence are invited to submit a proposal.
Deadline to enter the competition is March 25, 2010.
