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

For the first time, an artistic gathering will impose these humanist values exhaustively on its artists.

This is an unprecedented artistic experience whose goal is to provide the greatest number of people with immediate jubilation and joy, without requiring any prior knowledge.

If this subjective experience is shared by a large number of people, it will be truly universal.

Theme of the OLYMP’ARTS 2023: Environment and Energy

Public Voting

The vote of the world public, as an exclusive classification, is one of the main specificities of the OLYMP'ARTS.

The evaluation grids that will be proposed to the public will concern the imposed values which are beauty, aesthetics, harmony and non-violence.

If a personal appreciation is subjective, the universal character of a final judgment will exist by the establishment of the average of a world public vote representative of all the cultures - all the countries taking part in this world vote - in a completely anonymous way.

In this way, the influences that exist in all societies, as well as the modes and currents of thought, will not be able to have any effect on the result which will become objective on the universal level.

Members of the voting public will receive an official OLYMP'ARTS Judge diploma, valid for all the following OLYMP'ARTS.
