NEW FOR HACIA XXIII—HACIA ART CHALLENGE!

Dear Delegates!

In order for citizens to act as agents of transformative change in their societies they must be empowered through education. Education in its most basic form is defined by literacy, the ability to read and write– however it extends to things much greater such as critical thinking skills, mathematics, technical skills, etc. These skills are in many ways necessary for democracy in order for the citizens to be able to make educated votes and analyze current events. Latin America holds some of the worst education statistics in the world in addition to being the world’s most unequal region. The poor are unable to access to the phenomenal education available to the wealthy. Your task is to create a piece of art that demonstrates the limits in the education system that exist and prevent citizens from becoming vehicles of transformative power and contributing to their democracies.
