From a glassblower in Tunisia to artists in Tanzania; from kite makers in Japan to tribal music in Borneo, Artsworld tells the stories of people whose talent brings beauty and colour to the world. We look at how people across the globe are using the arts to bring about social change in their communities, highlight injustice and provoke political reform. Al Jazeera’s new series brings you the stories that allow for a greater understanding of one another’s cultures and traditions.
