Artists For A Better World Pledge To The Arts

AFABW180Whereas, I believe in creating a better world through the use of aesthetics;

Whereas, I understand that in the past, societies have flourished and expanded when they supported, encouraged and patronized the arts;

Whereas, I pledge to do all I can to create a better world by helping to keep the arts as a central part of our culture;

Whereas, I see the benefit of working with individuals and groups that are making positive changes in society;

Whereas, I pledge to take a wider responsibility as a creative being to do what I can to uplift the culture through aesthetics, and by using my talents in conjunction with those of similar purpose;

Whereas, I believe in the importance of the artist, and his role, as stated by artist, humanitarian and philosopher L. Ron Hubbard who wrote: “The rehabilitation of that art-ability of a culture is a tremendously valid undertaking and will repay a culture a thousand times over for any effort made in that direction. A culture is only as great as its dreams, and its dreams are dreamed by Artists.”

I pledge to support Artists for a Better World International in helping to create a new Renaissance for Mankind.
