The Franz Liszt Foundation is an artistic and cultural association created under the wellknown French law of 1901, international and interdisciplinary, distinguished by its humanistic ideals.
It is presented as a force for human and social progress by proposing initiatives to promote access to art and culture to as many people. So it requires actors from the cultural and economic world, wishing to communicate and share in order to enter a common construction.
Music and art in general have always been "humanism", that is to say, they are fundamentally at the service of man and of humanity. In this sense, they are the opposite of the general process of cultural commercialization that prevails in our societies. Certainly everyone should live by his work, but it is also conceivable that it may be more effective and rewarding to do otherwise than relying into the mold of the market which creates rivalry, competition and “everyone for himself”.
For these reasons we propose to all artists to engage in actions that put their art at the service of cultural, social and economic activities, which will enable them to become known and recognized more closely than by only opening a page on the social networks, developing through advertising purchases, thus transforming themselves into a product like any other.
The companies concerned about social responsibility and ethics will naturally synergize with cultural actors, seeking the common good whose benefits will return, by definition, to each and every.
We invite artists to join and companies to become partners. The action of the Franz Liszt Foundation, which already has an extensive network developed internationally (especially in Brazil) and a substantial content can flourish and bring with it beneficial behavioral changes to all members of our societies.
