Samiland is part of the UNESCO Observatory Cultural Village programme. Together with local communities, UNESCO Observatory has launched art-based multidisciplinary projects in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond. UNESCO Observatory’s vision is to increase arts education in the educational programmes of the cultural villages. UNESCO Observatory’s cultural village model was developed as part of this project. It provides an excellent example of the critical importance of arts education and creative activities for sustainable development, communality, flexibility and local manifestations of cultures. The partners participating in the project represent several fields, such as architecture, sociology, economics and business life.
