Encouraging Creativity and Culture

"If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I? If not now, when?"
Ethics of the Fathers, 1:14

Dreaming again. Dreaming of creating a better world, of composing our own hymn, of writing our own book, of contributing our share to a never-ending creation. The seed of creativity can be found in each of us, but few are those who cultivate it, and even fewer are those who reap and share the fruits of their labor. The latter need encouraging to carry on and surpass themselves so that together we can ensure everyone’s access to culture, without which songs don’t lull us, walls remain empty, minds are void of libraries. So that together we can minimize the risk of confinement in a single culture that would be cut off from the others and would prevent us from listening to the songs of the world.
