The Caux Artists Program (CAP) is presented in association with Renewal Arts, an international network of people who share the conviction that the different forms of art can be positive and powerful forces for changing our personal lives and the wider world. Renewal Arts has presented International Forums in Caux, gathering hundreds of participants from all over the world. Renewal Arts grew out of Initiatives of Change, a diverse, global network committed to building trust across the world's divides. It is comprised of people of many cultures, nations, beliefs and backgrounds who are committed to transforming society through individual and inter-relational change, starting in their own lives.
The CAP participants are a select group of 20 - 30 artists from diverse cultural backgrounds who have made a professional commitment to work in the fields of drama, music theatre and/or music. CAP is inviting actor/singers, singer/dancers, singer/instrumentalists and broad-based musicians who have a vested interest in exploring the power of art as a catalyst for change in society, while at the same time strengthening their artistic skill and vision.
The Caux Artists Program will consist of two overlapping phases:
The training involves networking with the IofC conferences and the Caux community and includes the provision of interdisciplinary arts events.
In addition to audio and video documentation of their performances, all successful participants receive an Artists certificate.
"The project you describe (CAP) has my full and enthusiastic support. Without music and art the deeper, wider change we seek will never arrive."
