A quest for meaning and landmarks
At the dawn of a third millennium in search of meaning and bearings, the future seems to us based on four essential values
Education / Legacy / Opening / Sharing .
Art, design and architecture, bearers of these emblematic values, participate in the development of a more positive and creative world.
Our goal: To allow access to Art
• Promoting the visual arts (painting, sculpture, drawing, comic's, photography, video art, digital art and more generally all forms of artistic expression that produces objects essentially perceived by the eye), applied arts, decorative arts , design, and architecture,
•Allowing the greatest number of people to have access to art and culture through the use of multimedia technologies and the creation of its own media channel (TV, web, mobile ...) independent and international, dedicated to art and culture and based on the values of education, transmission, openness and knowledge sharing,
• Establish an international memory bank of audiovisual cultural programs around the visual arts, applied arts, decorative arts, design and architecture for future generations.
