Mission Statement

Human(art)istic Festival wants to contribute to a more humane society, with liberal-minded and artistic inspiration. By researching into the influence of societal and technological developments, it wants to offer people a chance to (re)orient themselves in an increasingly complex world.

Phenomena such as globalization, urbanization, migratory flows, the increasing gap between rich and poor, the destruction of the biosphere, technological innovations and the new media confront us with new questions about what it means to be human and our relationship with the world.

The situation in which we find ourselves compels us not only to re-think humanism, but also to ask the question which common future we want to engage ourselves in. Following the principles of liberal humanism (as an open and dynamic view of life), Human(art)istic Project tries to stimulate people to shape their own lives and the community they live in.
