In a world that is becoming smaller and evermore tightly connected, it becomes imperative to facilitate communication between people of various cultures. Art plays a unique role as a bridge across peoples of diverse backgrounds, highlighting the underlying unity of human spirit among diverse peoples of our planet. Bridging of cultural gaps does not mean widespread assimilation or monotonous uniformity. In fact, humanity must cherish its legacy of diversity, whilst recognizing that inside the various exteriors, lay fundamental similarities. Languages, Religions, Customs, and Mythologies all form different shells around a single nucleus of universal Truth, of which art is an expression.
Join renowned Photographer and Philosopher, Mr. Pierre Poulain, in his investigation of this unique role of Art, and let's together shed light on the fundamental unity of humanity.
