In 1982, the Dance Committee of ITI founded International Dance Day to be celebrated every year on 29th April, the birthday anniversary of Jean-Georges Noverre, 1727-1810, the creator of modern ballet. The intention of International Dance Day is to celebrate dance, to revel in the universality of this art form, to cross all political, cultural and ethnic barriers and to bring people together with a common language – dance.

Mission: • To promote the art form – dance or theatre - to the world. • To make people aware of the value of the art form. • To enable the theatre or dance community to promote their work on a broad scale, so that opinion leaders in the political sphere are aware of the value of the art form and support it. • To enjoy the art form - dance or theatre - all over the world. • To share joy with others.

ITI Publications Committee announces a new Book Almanac Project: "The Social Theatre Today"
Under the guidance of Alfira Arslanova, General Secretary of the Russian Centre of ITI and President of the ITI Publication Committee (IPC) a new Book Series has been launched. The books are non-commercial publications, created within the framework of the IPC. The publications reflect the activities and influences of the performing arts in a system of social changes in society in various countries. The first publication that should appear before the 36th ITI World Congress is dedicated to people of culture and cultural organizations and their survival during the coronavirus pandemic.

Idea and Purpose
The art world affected by the coronavirus needs self-support and support from the authorities. The purpose of the entire Series of the Almanac is to put together a "global puzzle", a collective image of the world's performing arts, with truthful and specific details from each country. Reflection of reality in a concentrated form in this collection is a step on the path of mutual assistance, giving the impulse "We are together!"
The pandemic has shown to everybody how insperable the citizens of all countries are linked with each other. The International Theatre Institute ITI, the world's largest oganization for the performing arts that connects members and their friends, helps to assemble information and thus making the state of the performing arts known to others. Together we can better reflect our pain and our mood.
Through our collaboration, we can share experiences in survival, share the bitterness of loss and inspire each other with new ideas.
Currently, the ITI Publication Committee (IPC) is putting together an editorial board, is creating the structure for the books and makes this first call for the first issue of the Book Series dedicated to "Social Theatre Today – 2020. Pandemic".

Call for Articles for the first Almanac "Social Theatre Today – 2020. Pandemic"
The ITI Publications Committee is interested in:
a. Articles published in 2020, reflecting the situation in the field of performing arts during the period of the coronavirus pandemic in general
b. Statistics of cultural figures who have passed away for reasons related to coronavirus, as well as the names of the most prominent personalities associated with culture (in this case, photographs and information about the person are needed for the heading in memorials, in some cases even posthumous essays)
c. Interviews of experts on unrealized plans, human losses, hopes and ideas on how to preserve art in the current conditions
d. Artistic photographs illustrating the situation in theatres and cities in 2020
e. Pop vox questionnaire: audience survey (name, age, gender activities, country) about how they miss theatre and performances, why they needed theatre in the past and will / can they go to the theatre now
f. Monologues, statements, excerpts, quotes from prominent/local people about the pandemic and hopes for the future
g. Projects, titles and authors of works created in 2020, related to the pandemic, excerpts from them

Inspirational Words on Culture and the Arts by Nick J. Lizaso, Chairman of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) of the Philippines, Vice-President of the International University Theatre Association (IUTA – a Partner Organization of ITI) and member of the Philippine Centre of ITI.

Inspirational Words on Culture and the Arts
Anak*, why art?
In this so-called quarantine era, is there room for the arts?
by Nick J. Lizaso, Chairman of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) of the Philippines, Vice-President of the International University Theatre Association (IUTA – a Partner Organization of ITI) and member of the Philippine Centre of ITI.

Many years back, in my talk to students at the Angono National School for the Arts, I strived to open the minds of the young to the value of being involved in the arts as creator or performer. But, alas, they complained that they were discouraged by their parents. “Walang pera sa sining. There’s no money in the arts.” That’s what was drilled into their young minds.

Since I can remember, parents of traditional upper class families would mandate their kids to take up law, medicine, engineering, architecture, or as a last choice, accounting. Nowadays, middle class families prefer their children to take up technical and practical courses that are more marketable such as nursing, culinary arts, IT, merchant marine, and other newly invented courses. Never mind if the kid’s aptitude is toward the arts.

In primary grades, the arts have been relegated to being club activities. In college, arts and humanities are now merely elective subjects. No wonder, many of our young graduates are materially predisposed but bereft of imagination and creativity.

I believe that we need the arts to save and enrich our nation’s soul. Art, to me, is the great equalizer. For there is something in art that we all respond to in a positive, endearing way. Harmony, grace, symmetry—whatever—these appeal to each human being on a deeper level.

Now more than ever, specially during these uncertain times, our people need the arts for their intrinsic ability to entertain, to delight, to challenge, to give meaning, to interpret, to raise awareness, to stimulate. Art nourishes the soul and heals the sick of body and mind.

But now comes the nagging pesky question: Is there money in the arts?
I know of a painter in his late 60s who is now selling his paintings online during the long lockdown. The earnings are more than enough to sustain his family, at a time when his daughters are out of jobs.

Sometime ago, a local furniture designer was approached by a billionaire from the Middle East who purchased several millions of dollars worth of furnishings from him. Many Filipino illustrators are being contracted by a Hollywood animation studio to make animated movies. It wasn’t long ago when a foreign theater impresario auditioned Filipino talents for casting in a new musical staged in London’s West End.

What do all these have in common? Personal income for the artists. Tax money for the Philippine government. Who says there is no money in the arts?

And guess what? Arts and culture are now a country’s potent assets to influence the world. They are now acknowledged as major drivers of national economies around the world. The world is turning upside down. Bumaligtad na ang mundo.
Believe it or not, the arts and culture sectors are able to churn out an estimated $250 billion in revenue every year, employing 29.5 million people worldwide.
The arts are so important in developed economies that the UK is reported to be investing nearly $2 billion in cultural institutions and the arts to help a sector that has been crippled by the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown.

Arts and culture are now a country’s potent assets to influence the world. They
are now acknowledged as major drivers of national economies around the world. The world is turning upside down.
---------------------------------------
I also read something about the world’s economy shifting from an economy based in manufacturing and heavy industry, to an economy where creativity and collaboration are at its very center. This new economy is called the “Orange Economy” or “Creative Economy,” which includes all the sectors whose goods and services are based on intellectual property: visual and performing arts, crafts, film, architecture, design, publishing, games and toys, fashion, music, advertising, software, TV and radio, and videogames.

This means that the Filipino artists’ time to shine on the global economic stage has come. Tinatanghal na ang mga alagad at taga-likha ng sining.

But to enable our country to excel in the so-called creative economy, we need to create an environment where young talents are encouraged to pursue their passion for the arts and allowed to give full expression to their creativity as artists.

Let us build the kind of future where art and music programs are alive in schools, where art museums are being opened, where scholarships are increasingly offered in performing arts colleges. There should be legislation that will make arts part of the curriculum and tools for teaching as early as primary grades up to college. The objective is to inculcate “art consciousness” in our youth.
But most important, let us protect our artists for they are a neglected resource. We need to nurture our creators, performers, and workers who keep our arts alive.

This is why we need to push for the establishment of the Department of Arts and Culture, which among other things, will empower the Filipino artist and integrate and orchestrate all efforts to make the arts a potent force for development.

If there is a magna carta for domestic helpers, why not a bill of rights for art and cultural workers that is unique to their peculiar needs?

The envisioned Magna Carta should offer hope, and equal opportunity and provide equal protection to all artists regardless of class, age, and gender. It should include a set of incentives to lift artists and art workers from poverty, a sustaining system to enable them to be continuously productive and economically independent in an atmosphere of unfettered freedom.

With a thriving community of inspired and newly empowered artists who are seen as stalwarts of national development, nothing can stop us from making a mark on the world’s cultural economy.

So, to the question of money-minded parents, “why art?” The answer is why not?
Published in the Manila Bulletin, 24 August 2020

*Anak is a Filipino word and means “Child”, so the title may be translated to: “My Child, why art?”
