"Reminding how important culture and arts are ties in very much with education. You don't need to explain to a young child how important it is to draw or express yourself physically or to sing and move, those things that children feel instinctively. You only need to open your eyes to observe the youngsters to see that obviously the cultural aspect of our lives is something deeply important to us as humans," says Nikky Smedley (UK) an actress, dancer, choreographer, director, producer and author, best known for hew role as Laa Laa in the Teletubbies in the Episode 9 of Culture and Creativity in Times of Crisis series.
