This article discusses the decolonization of minds in developing countries, the struggle to espouse their dignity and difference, and obtain recognition in a globalized world. In this context art is of great significance because it can stimulate forces of profound resistance and act as an obstacle to the dilution of identity, in all its aspects and affiliations. But the teaching of art is still neglected in many developing countries. While there are many artists in the Caribbean, notably in universities, it is important that we develop the acquisition of knowledge, expertise and know-how in order to promote forms of harmonious living that will enable us to harness and liberate this creative energy.
