He believes that creativity is an essential human quality and needs to be nurtured. Art in all its forms is the most obvious way to encourage creativity. He has been doing this for the last twenty years through his festivals which have ranged from classical music, to Graffiti Artists, to Street Artists, to static exhibitions. All this work has been done within the framework of the European Union. It has involved many young people both as artists and as trainees to develop their own competencies in areas such as language, intercultural understandings, solidarity and understanding of the plight of those less fortunate.
