Creativity, individuality, national identity, and the pursuit of freedom are some of our greatest cultural achievements. The cultivation of these values through the arts can be quite effective, and the implementation of these cultural goals should not end at the secondary level, but should continue through the college years. This endeavour is especially relevant in light of contradictory trends between global and local tendencies in cultural development. The disparity between these two forces in the spontaneous development of culture reveals that local culture is at a disadvantage. We are confronted with the problem of how to draw on the accomplishments of current technology without surrendering to globalization at the expense of local cultural traditions and identity. Clearly, a straightjacket mentality will not be fruitful—prevention and constraint will not bring solutions.
