Ethnoarts

SIL Pacific values the diversity of art forms throughout the Pacific. In order to preserve a local artistic heritage for future generations, SIL ethnoarts consultants work with communities to document and promote indigenous art forms. Working with local practitioners, consultants have documented wood carving, painting, drum-language communications, and other traditions. They have helped local communities design sustainable applied arts initiatives in order to revitalise and maintain active use of those traditions.
