The conference will focus on, but not limited to, Arts in History, Culture, Philosophy, Education, and Heritage. Recently, the study of arts has become the concerns not only among artists and scholars in arts but also those from other disciplines such as history, culture, philosophy, education, and heritage. These people initiate cross-disciplinary approaches and methodologies resulting in wealthy information and findings. The variety of approaches has been developed to position the arts in different aspects of human life. To establish valid theories and methods they need to share with colleagues from different disciplines and field of study. This internationally interconnected and interdisciplinary conference intends to provide opportunity for scholars, researchers, educators, writers, creators, and critics to present papers, exhibitions, and/or performances for its 2017 meeting. These apply to all genres of arts, including fine arts, performing arts, and arts of recording media, such as music, theatre, dance, crafts, painting, sculpture, design, photography, as well as film and television.
