CODE OF ETHICS AND DECLARATION OF INTENT
The commitment entered into by the artists who are signatories to this Code is that of being peace makers in compliance with basic human and civil rights. To be a peace maker is to be the driving force for the aspirations and wishes of ‘world citizens’, both women and men, who undertake to act in the spirit of basic human and civil rights and who, as artists, are sincerely involved in the issues of our time, from the deprivations of underdevelopment to the prospects of consistent sustainable development, from the environmental and ecological conditions on our planet to a more equitable distribution of natural resources, from the epidemic ills suffered by so many human beings to discrimination of all kinds which exist today, from the contrast between civilisation and faiths to the threats of terrorism, guerrilla warfare and armed conflict, and who feel committed to bearing witness to the desire for peace, a specific community of interests, harmonious integration in an increasingly inter-ethnic, inter-religious and inter-cultural society. They state that they consider and experience Art in each of its forms and expressions as a universal, unifying language, an incomparable means of communicating and transmitting ethical values promoting peaceful coexistence, a harmonious relationship between human beings, nature and the environment around them, and the surmounting of any difference and disparity for a better quality of life.
