The purpose of this teacher training course is to provide the teachers, professors and administrative staff at centers of learning with theoretical perspectives on human and cultural rights with regard to cultural diversity, as well as giving them skills in managing cultural diversity in the classroom through the arts, while providing tools to produce intercultural skills among students, using different forms of artistic expression (theatre, dance, music, literature).

It will be held on the dates of July 23 and 24 at Casa Árabe, with a duration of 12 hours, and will be acknowledged with 1.2 educational credits from the Autonomous Region of Madrid.
