"Art is the language of the heart and mind. It knows no nation, favours
no race nor class. Art reveals to us that which is hidden. It begins a
healing of that which ails us. Through art we are transformed from our
ordinary lives to lives where anything is possible. And most
important, art creates dialogue where none existed. It opens space for
peace among peoples and nations. With the artist at the table, a new
door is open."
