Are you already helping to create a better world through aesthetics? (Or would you like to?) Want to affiliate yourself with others who share your views?
“Great!” and “You can,” are the short answers.
“Connect up with Artists For A Better World International and let’s create together,” is a more vital and causative answer.
We would be honored to have your fine art, music, poetry, short stories, and/or videos represented in our free AFABW “Artists Directory.” Visit the work of artists that are already presented, and make new friends.
The most elemental way to get connected would be to display your work in our “Artists Directory,” or consider writing an educational article for potential publication in our online “Art Articles.” (Send a query or your article via “Contact Us.”)
Can you nominate an artist for one of our annual AFABW “Creating A Better World” awards? Such artists have contributed to the betterment of their fellow man, community and world through the use of aesthetics. Stated another way, these are artists who are helping others through their work and we want to acknowledge them!
As a free member you also have the opportunity to participate in AFABW art productions: including music CD’s, literary compilations, visual art projects, theatrical productions, arts festivals, community service activities/events and special projects and performances. Some of these activities would require that you be near any of our affiliated organizations in Toronto, Canada; outside of London, England; near Johannesburg, South Africa; in Boston, Massachussetts; or here in Hollywood. In most cases, you can participate, help, or contribute from any part of the world. Take a few moments to peruse our “Press Releases” to see what we’ve been up to in the past and check out “What’s New” to see what’s going on now or in the future.

AFABW supports the establishment of an official Holiday For the Arts, called ART DAY, which occurs on the second Friday of every August.
AFABW has regular events at the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre International, in Hollywood, California, and at affiliated Scientology organizations around the world, including in Boston, MA; Toronto, Canada; London, England; and Johannesburg, South Africa; as well as many events in global communities with allied organizations. The group includes members of the Church as well as artists and art enthusiasts of goodwill from all religions, nationalities, creeds, races and cultures. In short, any and all who desire to help in the creation of a better world.
The Church of Scientology was founded by L. Ron Hubbard, who saw the value of the artist to society:
“The artist has an enormous role in the enhancement of today’s and creation of tomorrow’s reality. He operates in a rank in advance of science as to the necessities and requirements of man. The elevation of a culture can be measured directly by the numbers of its people working in the field of aesthetics.”
“A culture is only as great as its dreams and its dreams are dreamed by artists.”
AFABW welcomes ideas and suggestions from any and all artists, art enthusiasts and social betterment groups about ways we can work together to create a better world.

Whereas, 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.
