International Society of Artists (ISA) has been founded at Florence Biennale 2003 and registered in Sweden as a non-profit cultural organization.
The objective of the company was to make Art to be recognized as an important part of human life. We united the artists in discussions concerning the role of Art in the contemporary world, and also how all the artists can obtain opportunities to live and work in the arts, how each of the artists can get possibilities to earn a living with his/her independent artistic work. Artists’ lives and destiny of Art depend on realization of our goals that prestige of Art must be restored and Art needs to be related to people widely.
Art is a part of Culture, and we believe that the world, in which Culture has a priority and the arts blossom freely, will become the tolerant and harmonious world. We have spoken about that on CAUCUS ON ART AND CULTURE at the 61st Annual UN Conference, being a part of the International Artists for Peace and World Harmony initiative.
A VISIBLE HUMANNESS
We are looking for people who would be working together with us. The participants, from the different cultural spheres, would give their own complementary ideas and actions, according to the topic of humanness. Humanness allows the planet to finish its tragic history and to come into the New Tolerant Era.
GEOPOLITICAL CLIMATE CHANGE
Marcus Tullius Cicero's expression "For among [times of] arms, the laws fall mute" has also been transformed to "For among [times of] arms, the Muses fall mute" ("Inter anna silent Musae") What in the meanings of those expressions have been changed since an antique turn of the millennia? How do actual times differ from the past millennium?
A VISIBLE HUMANNESS
The Project have been formed during many years, in parallel with life, together with life of the world. We believe you will not be indifferent to the following ideas. We welcome your reviews, opinions, advices, as well as your participation in the Project.
The Project is supposed to be a cultural show, complete and diverse, which would really become a new form of display the arts widely, and at the same time, it should present a humane essence of art, a real bringing of a powerful breath of fresh air of humanness into our admirable world.
We are looking for people who would be working together with us, who would give their own complementary ideas to the project for its content, according to the topic humanness. Humanness allows the planet to finish its tragic history and to come into the New Tolerant Era.

Project GEOPOLITICAL CLIMATE CHANGE
Marcus Tullius Cicero's expression "For among [times of] arms, the laws fall mute" has also been transformed to "For among [times of] arms, the Muses fall mute" ("Inter anna silent Musae")
What in the meanings of those expressions have been changed since an antique turn of the millennia? How do actual times differ from the past millennium?
People of different nations have created the United Nations and the International Law based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Here is a principle difference of our times from an antique turn of the millennia. Neither the Greeks nor the Romans had any concept of universal human rights; slavery, for instance, was justified both in ancient and modern times. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the United Nations and the International Law are the great achievements of nowadays.
If “the Muses” meant all kinds of art activities that are silent when the cannon, then now we consider education, arts and culture together, as a whole. Integrally, they become significant shaping force of society, which is able to overcome ignorance and intolerance, to stop the wars. It is a principle difference also.
These are the examples of the numerous moments of the new thinking emerging in the society that is necessary to identify, develop and implement them into the life. The past thinking is no longer possible in our principally new times of globalization.
As an artist and member of the International Artists for Peace and World Harmony Organizing Committee https://sites.google.com/site/societyofartists/isa/3-united-nations/p , I would like to propose a project that encourages all of us to look for the elements of the new thinking and to seek for the ways to implement them into the life. We form a new society, where a law holds, culture has a casting vote and the cannons are silent.
GEOPOLITICAL CLIMATE CHANGE
This project is a contest. Who will find the best way for changing a Geopolitical Climate for the better?
Geopolitical Climate can be improving permanently by innumerable local and global ways. A lot of paths can be found by people from different countries, in various fields and at different levels of awareness. Society depends on everybody's mind and suggestions.
After an open public voting, all of the suggested paths would be in use together.
1. Title: ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION CAN CHANGE A GEOPOLITICAL CLIMATE FOR THE BETTER.
Motto: Politics is a competition always: no competition – no politics. Competition is not always a war.
Financial and ideological competitions were leading people and nations to misunderstandings, confrontations and wars. That was earlier. In the new times people mind differently. Now we understand opposition as an interaction with the positive results for all parties. The more participants are involved into a friendship confrontation, the better. It may be a political competition in sphere of environmental protection. It means a protection of nature as a competition between different states and unions on governmental level.
What is for a beginning:
Project supposes to organize the permanent international art-exhibitions, where artists from over the world tell by their art-works about positive or negative moments in protection of nature in the different countries, unions and on the different continents.
(I am living in Sweden and I would like to tell about what I see. Swedish Government and the Governments of other Scandinavian countries develop the national economics in direction of an environmental protection during many decades. We have now amazing results by means of such politics. Scandinavia is one of ecologically cleanest places on the planet. When people destroy nature, then they destroy themselves. When people protect nature, then they protect own minds. Protection of nature on governmental level has become one of the national ideas in Scandinavian countries, and the Scandinavian thinking and life now are much peaceful and humane.)
Such permanent art-exhibitions will change the minds over the world for the better.
2. Title: CULTURE AND EDUCATION CAN CHANGE A GEOPOLITICAL CLIMATE FOR THE BETTER.
Motto: Different cultures do not consider each other as enemies. Appreciation of culture means peace and harmony; ignoring of culture leads to feud.
It is clear also that neither the Russians nor the Ukrainians consider each other as enemies. Historically Russians and Ukrainians are the same culture in general. On the territorial cultural space, there are differences coming in process of life, which create different cultures, and then different nations; the nations, which stay to be appreciating and enriching each other. Nations are going to be the states. In the past, the financial relations of the forming states were deciding by wars, by value of human lives. That is in the past. In the 21st century people mind differently. Now the new states are forming on base of cultures, which complement each other and appreciate the differences from each other. But, financial-ideological formations provoke conflicts nowadays too. In spite of it, a level of education in this cultural region let to stop the civil war in Ukraine, which is forming now as a state on the post-Soviet territory. Any artificial state borders being created as a result of wars, or just by a formal administrative way as it was in Soviet Union, are always going to be replaced corresponding to the national cultures, as it happened in Germany the Berlin Wall fell down.
In the new society, people are not involved into the ideological-financial struggle and wars, people do not pay attention for provocations, do not destroy their cultural consciousness and people do not forget their historically-cultural achievements.
This Project supposes a cardinal direction that a lot of projects would consider. (Two examples of such particular projects are above.) We are creating a structure of the new thinking in different areas at different levels. Such a net, like streams, small and large rivers is nourishing the new global tolerant society.
The past thinking is no longer possible in our principally new times of globalization. Globalization is a cultural tolerance, a peaceful interaction. We are seeking for the like-minded people for joint work with Projects oriented to the Millennium Development.
