Developing the proper environment for artistic creativity

Promoting creativity and allowing it to flower in a spirit of freedom and intercultural dialogue is one of the best ways of maintaining cultural vitality. Access to the new technologies opens the way to original forms of expression.

Since creativity concerns everyone, including young people—particularly in underprivileged groups—studies carried out all over the world, not forgetting the great global appointment fixed by UNESCO for 2005, show that art education should be a part of all school curricula. 

The role of creators in society too is every bit as important, and the Organization is strongly in favour of recognizing their legal and social status and of strengthening their networks around the world.
