If culture is an ecosystem that feeds our souls, what happens to our souls if that ecosystem is polluted?
International Arts Movement is founded on the belief that our culture is broken and needs to be restored to wholeness. Our culture is not a territory to be won or lost but a resource to steward with care. Art, technology, new ideas and new enterprises rise out of culture.
It is also true, however, that in many ways these same artifacts define culture.
Because of this, it is the purpose of International Arts Movement to nurture artists, creative catalysts, academics, and professionals from all disciplines by providing a sanctuary in which to gather, learn, collaborate and create. IAM hopes that the outpourings of these creative efforts will ultimately foster the renewal of our cultural ecosystem.
