Scientology Church celebrates the role of the artist in uplifting the culture with an exhibit of the works of local artists.
Brussels, Europe, April 29, 2016 (Newswire.com)
The annual Arts du Temps exhibit April 14-24, held in the Great Hall of the Churches of Scientology for Europe in Brussels, commemorated World Art Day with an eclectic mix of genres and themes in a warm and inviting atmosphere.
World Art Day has been set aside by the International Association of Arts (IAA) to take place each year on April 15—Leonardo da Vinci’s birthday. It commemorates “the role of art in the contemporary world, with its complex artistic, social and political layers.”
Scientology Founder L. Ron Hubbard viewed art as a vital social force. In his seminal book, Science of Survival, he wrote, “A culture is only as great as its dreams, and its dreams are dreamed by artists.”
Ten artists presented their works spanning genres from acrylics, watercolors and drawings to calligraphy, design and light shows, where they also had the opportunity to interact with those visiting the exhibit and share their passion for what they do.
The IAA was created in response to UNESCO’s mission to discover and take up the social, economic, or political obstacles blocking free expression and to improve artists’ working conditions and assure their freedom. UNESCO granted the IAA/AIAP (Association International des Arts Plastiques) the status of UNESCO partnership NGO consultative association.
The Churches of Scientology for Europe opened February 2013. An Ideal Scientology Organization (Org), it is configured to service Scientologists in their ascent to spiritual freedom and serve as a home for the entire community—a meeting ground of cooperative effort to uplift citizens of all denominations.
