Coming from many countries and continents, men and women from all walks of life have met regularly since 1993 in a Congress with the unusual title: “What if Beauty could change the World?” They share the same conviction: beauty works deeply, it gives dignity and hope back to humanity. In these gatherings, times of celebration, work and stimulation, they meet to share their quest and experiences, creating a colourful, open mosaic that introduces new methods, inspiring change in our current artistic, social, cultural and economic lives.

Congress: A Place of Expression where each person comes to draw hope, taking the risk of exposing their most intimate aspirations, and receiving a living testimony from others.  Artistic workshops, conferences, project presentations, meals, small group discussions, shows, each moment is staged so that each word shared is an engaging act, a risk taken personally and together.
