# I believe in the moment, this moment, our time, the present.
In the power of contemporary struggles, issues, dialogues, ideas.
# I believe in new art. If it does not reflect the complexities of the world, it is false. It has no reason to exist.
Contemporary issues and ideas of tomorrow need to inspire those who can make a difference: you and me.
# I believe in communication and the creation of meaning as a way to reach for something broader, deeper, seeking to create a philosophical view, understanding, or a more connected sense of compassion with our fellow beings and the world at large.
# I belief in beauty, in creation, in consolation, in the spoken word, in silence, in the unforgettable image, craftsmanship, in an act of love. Otherwise, everything is dismissible.
# I believe in the poetry of daily life. There can never be a lack of subjects, since there is no lack of reality. The arts, culture and the humanities engage and inspire me to explore the world we live in and to shed some light, create consciousness, deeper thought, more compassion.
I believe this to be good for something.
# I believe in creative spirits and in their attempts to map the surrounding world, to examine it bit by bit, through academic or artistic eyes. All practices and disciplines – creative, innovative, democratic and diverse – can represent possibilities for new insight, new experience, more ideas, freedom, new life, if consciousness is the beginning and the end of the action.
# I believe it’s good to get involved and that no action is without consequence.
