Without a doubt, this cultural initiative, beyond superficiality and markets, lies in the importance of visibility and support in the creative and innovative contribution of Arts and Culture on the consequence of the technological digital transformation in the global crisis and the current economic and social paradigm. A crucial proposal of awareness and commitment for advancement, development, stability and, above all, balance between society and nature. Making the invisible visible by providing a way to express and explore individual emotions and experiences that stimulate the imagination, improve the capacity for empathy and promote the understanding of new and different perspectives and realities.

Fear and lack of common sense and material individual selfishness, as excuses, are only exceptions that do not confirm any rule when the possibilities and opportunities for growth and progress are only a decisive question of our vital space-time.
