“Beauty will save the world!” – Dostoïevski 1821-1881

Like Dostoïevski, we believe that it is the combination of universality, non-violence and harmony that make the beauty of a work.
Taken separately, the powers of these 3 values are insufficient.
For the first time, an artistic gathering will impose these humanist values in an exhaustive way to its artists.
This is an unprecedented artistic experience whose goal is to provide the greatest amount of jubilation and immediate joy, without requiring any prior knowledge.
If this subjective experience is shared by a large number of people, it will be truly universal.


The Olymp'Arts will demonstrate the fundamental role of art in improving everyday life. Universality will guide artists and works in a search for emotions, harmonies of forms and sounds common to all cultures.


A vector of communion and peace between individuals and peoples, art in all its forms opposes violence. Thus, all the works presented will have to carry the non-violence, original value of art and Olympism.


Harmony involves combining into a balanced whole of the qualities of body, will, and spirit. The works of art presented must therefore be at the service of the harmonious development of man and tend towards an aesthetic ideal.
