Artists Without Borders - Artistes Du Monde - Artists Of The World Charity Profile
FRONTERAS brings psychological relief to the victims of war in the form of art and/or entertainment. Art is no less important than food and water. Through art people attain catharsis (spiritual purification) which is probably the most important function of art. Catharsis through art is an essential part of psychological (mental and emotional) healing.
FRONTERAS promotes the work of well known or yet unrecognized talented artists. Unknown artists have their work promoted and gain experience by donating their work to a humanitarian cause. Famous artists gain reputation and popularity by linking their names to our humanitarian mission. Both unrecognized and celebrated artists that are VOLUNTEER or CONTRIBUTING members of ARTISTS WITHOUT BORDERS / ARTISTES SANS FRONTIERES share the quality of being outstanding.
FRONTERAS strives to preserve the world's cultural diversity by raising consciousness about the minorities that are facing cultural extinction.
FRONTERAS is comprised of volunteer members who carry out the humanitarian mission of bringing art to the victims of war; ethno-artists who promote peace and mutual understanding by celebrating the cultural and ethnic diversity of the world; and talented artists of all disciplines who donate their work and talent to the humanitarian duty of helping people in distress.
