Fostering cultural enrichment and wellness in its deepest holistic sense within the individual and the community

Why Apollo?
The young Apollo was trained in the arts and sciences of the nine muses to ignite his own creativity. He developed into the epitome of Beauty and the leader of the muses and the director of their choir.
Beauty has a resounding effect upon our environment. Creativity provides solutions we have yet to imagine. There is a young Apollo in each of us.

Our Vision


Pure art is the expression of a radiant spirit. Through art thou hast the light.*

Great art cuts across every boundary and touches every soul.

Culture and the arts provide a common sharing of our One Humanity and reveal the deeper essence and hidden Beauty that lies within us all.

Each artist can transform the world with Beauty.

Can inspire others to see,

to dare, to dream, to awaken.

What could be more important at this time in our rapidly changing world?

The value of the arts and culture cannot be underestimated as a lighted way to greater unity, appreciation and understanding, between and among all cultures and peoples.


"True creative art is a soul function, the primary task therefore of the artist is alignment, meditation, and the focussing of his attention on the world of meaning." **

   " Where .....there is true union of the higher and the lower energies you will have the emergence of beauty in form, the enshrining of some aspect of truth in appropriate expression and thus enriching the world. Where there is synthesis, the true creative artist begins to function." ***


  We invite you to join us,

with Apollo and the Muses as our inspiration,

at the midway point where the inner and outer worlds meet.

To experience, experiment and express the arts in a new light for

a new age.

Through beauty, music, colour and light,

movement , form, rythm and song,

the soul is freed to dance.
