The first edition of the conference was sucessfully organized by the Faculty of Languages and Arts in 2014. This conference is based on the idea of facing global challenges in the future related to arts and art education issues as a material research object. Therefore, this edition’s theme is “Interdiciplinary Approach on Arts and Arts Education” which is related to environment-based art learning as one focus that can be captured in this conferencing. From the educational side, thematic art learning and the problem of artistic differentiation that happened should also be discussed as a foundation to strengthen the application of art and culture curriculum currently being implemented. Another problem to anticipate is lagging with other developing countries as well as developed countries; the aspect of mastery of information technology seems to be a fixed price, and must be realized in continuous learning and can be done from basic to advanced. And finally, but not less important, is the orientation of learning to foster creativity of learners is a necessity that must be grown from an early age. All aspects of this conferential background can not be separated from various approaches that can be done. By continuing to promote cultural diversity, research that refers to a multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary approach will be able to provide a cultivation of scientific treasures especially in the arts and culture.
