The mission of the WFI Arts Counsel is to bridge the arts with modern-day international relations issues to break free of outmoded ways of thinking and find solutions based on love and human unity.

In an era of walls, the WFI Arts Counsel leverages the power of art to break down barriers and build a new paradigm of life based on love, human dignity, and equality.


            We invite you to explore the work of the artistic visionaries who are using art to imagine the unimaginable, giving voice to the voiceless and, in doing so, becoming an expression of human hope that disrupts and transcends rhetoric and redefines what is visible, thinkable, and possible.
