“Humanity, having passed through the ages of infancy and childhood, now stands at the threshold of its collective maturity, the hallmark of which will be the unification of the human race…”
Our world is changing at an unprecedented pace. Where are we headed? What if world peace were not only possible but inevitable? Could it be the next stage in humanity’s collective destiny? How can we draw on our diversity and collective strength to make it a reality?
“…the earth’s inhabitants are now challenged to draw on their collective inheritance to take up, consciously and systematically, the responsibility for the design of their future.”
Humanity faces seemingly insurmountable challenges: extremes of wealth and poverty, environmental catastrophes, crisis of governance, prejudices of all kinds and the continuing inequalities between women and men. The arts and the artist are crucial to imagine a world where we have overcome these challenges and convey the power of the human spirit to design our collective future. The arts widen our gaze and enable people to see nobility in their fellow human beings.
It is up to us to do this arduous work, to cross this threshold. It is up to us to design our collective destiny. We are looking for original works from visual artists, dancers, poets, authors, playwrights, musicians, photographers, videographers, sculptors (and any other art form) to help pave the way to envision this future. Join us in using the power of the arts to co-create this just and peaceful world.
“Who is it that can imagine the lofty standard which such a civilization… is destined to attain?”
“Who can measure the heights to which human intelligence, liberated from its shackles, will soar?”
“Who can visualize the realms which the human spirit… will discover?”
