Art transforms reality.
Art can change the world.
The Fundacion ONUART is honoured to organize The Silk Road Concert, the first concert to take place at the Human Rights and Alliance of Civilizations Chamber at the Palais des Nations. The encounter between East and West through the Silk Road marked a new phase in the development and knowledge between both worlds. The world changed for good as borders diluted and cultures became closer. Nowadays, five hundred years later, “the new Silk Road”, is one of knowledge and communication. As in the times of the great caravans which brought the silk and porcelain of the East to the rest of the world, nowadays a deeper knowledge and meeting among cultures would be key once again for increasing development and prosperity. And in this process of fruitful interaction, the spread of the Art, as a universal language of creativity, of respect and emotion, contributes to a healthy coexistence of peoples, cultures, citizens and sensitivities.
