Arts, Media & Culture.
Since its inception in 1982, ICES has been unique in its integrated approach, which has viewed aesthetic engagement as an integral part of its research, advocacy and policy work. Throughout its 25 years, ICES has worked to promote arts and culture generally, as well as specifically in terms of promoting social transformation. This work has included the production of documentaries, the publication of literary works, and the organisation of film festivals, art exhibitions, writing workshops, and dance and musical performances and workshops. As with its dialogue fora, ICES has provided a free and open space for bold and innovative artistic expression spanning all forms – dance, music, theatre, photography, visual arts, film and mass media – often in collaboration with partner organisations working in the arts.
