World Youth Alliance's 2nd Annual International Arts Forum will take place Friday, Nov. 1st- Sunday, Nov. 3rd, 2013 and will focus on the topic of Art and Beauty and its relationship to our humanity. What is beauty? What is the role of beauty in art? Should art always be beautiful? What is the role of the artist? Art is a powerful way to examine the complexity, integrity, and beauty of human nature and the world. The creative act is a testament to the depth, richness, and beauty of human nature, and also tells us something important about who we are.
