Artists are better visionaries

Art provides a means for people to hear, see, feel and act differently. Therefore, art might increase our understanding of reality.
To better understand our complex world, GloComNet stimulates to explore the world of art and culture.

Here artists, composers, creative people, politicians and youngsters, among all others,
can share items and create new perspectives or ways of doing things.
