Holy See/ 8.1 Support to artists and other creative workers  

8.1.1 Overview of strategies, programmes and direct or indirect forms of support

One of the aims of the Pontifical Council for Culture is to support artistic creation in all fields. Recent years have seen an increase in artistic commissions by the dioceses. The main obstacles to creativity in this area are the lack of sufficient dialogue between artistic movements and those in charge of the Church's pastoral activities, and the difficulty in raising funds.

A study is being made on the possibility of preparing a padiglione of the Holy See for the Venice Biennale, inviting affirmed artists to participate. Also, for the tenth anniversary of the Letter to Artists from Pope John Paul II, the current Pontiff will receive an important delegation of artists in the setting of the Sistine Chapel.
