What is the Delphic Art Wall Project?
A unique platform to get School Children from around the world to present their artistic expressions on canvas on what they perceive Arts and Cultures to be, in an ambience designed to be fun.

These canvases will be eventually stitched together to make the world’s longest and visually stunning Art Wall – a statement of human emotions and perceptions. The Delphic Art Wall Project will make its presence the first time at the next Delphic Games. In the true spirit of the modern times, the communication and outreach will be through the social media, using the best techniques to reach out to specific geographic locations and communities in their languages, through their sensibilities and letting the viral nature of the communication take over. The Delphic Art Wall Project is an initiative of the International Delphic Council – a not for profit, non-political and non-sectarian organization initiated to foster feelings of cultural understanding by connecting individuals all over the world through the only Common Floor for Arts and Cultures – the Delphic Games. The Delphic Games are historically a peace creating competition of the arts. They took place for about 1000 years in ancient Greece one year prior to the Olympic Games. Six month before the beginning of the Games the organizers proclaimed the Delphic Peace Accord. Thereby, Delphi became the neural crossroads for solving conflicts.

What is the Theme?
The origin of the Delphic Games is in Delphi, Greece and the Castalian Springs holds the key to the Spiritual Significance of the Oracle that has made a profound impact on the world at large. Its water signifies purity, timelessness, continuity and adaptability. Values that is intrinsic to human perseverance and growth.

Water is of highest spiritual importance, is the most valuable spring of life. In the modern times, climatic and geological changes along with unplanned development of urban dwellings have made water a luxury in many parts of our Mother Earth. Water is the single most important source of Life for mankind and its depletion is a cause of concern. Unless we sensitize people of the need to find sustainability, this will be a major cause for extinction of water bodies and therefore forest cover, agriculture, cattle and relevant sources of Livelihood for mankind.

We intend highlighting this as the single most important concern for the world above all else and the theme will allow young minds to express their own ideas of how water holds the key to Life. This said, the young ones are free to express anything in realm of what their impression is about the world Cultures and Arts that they know of, OR their thoughts in the form of what they think they want to do to make things better.
