The Art

of Democracy

Scholarly discourse is essential to democracy and the open society, but carefully worded presentations and reports are not the only means of exploration and expression available. The IYTT strongly believe in the transformative power of artistic expression. Society can only be understood as an expression of humanity, from which follows that an open society must be open to a plurality of expressions devised by the human mind. During our international youth conferences, and in our work in general, we encourage our participants and Youth Fellows to let their creativity take charge, allowing for a wide variety of expressions to challenge the aesthetic mind on perceptions of all aspects of humanity and democracy.
