The STEAM+ program will feature a collaboration of interdisciplinary artists, policy-makers, and educators to deliberate and explore productive ways of incorporating art themes into interdisciplinary education. J Rêve International is taking the program beyond the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. The + is being included to bring all educators in multi-subject, multidisciplinary and encourage them to explore the arts when teaching students in any discipline.

According to Irina Bokova, Director General of UNESCO, “Education is a basic human right and the foundation for more sustainable, inclusive and just development.” In other words, the importance of education cannot be over-emphasized. In the words of William Bennett, former US Secretary of Education, “The arts are an essential element of education, just like reading, writing, and arithmetic, music, dance, painting, and theater are all keys that unlock profound human understanding and accomplishment.”
