WOA puts Spotlight on the Arts with new OLY Arts Committee

Sunday, December 9th, 2018

World Olympians Association has teamed up with Olympian artists to enhance the role of art and culture in the Olympic Movement with the formation of a new OLY Arts Committee.

Chaired by dual British Olympian and artist Roald Bradstock OLY, the Committee will support the framework of Olympic Agenda 2020, which calls for greater harmonisation of sport and culture, while highlighting the essential role Olympian artists play in spreading the Olympic values worldwide.

“Olympism is built on a philosophy that recognises the value of balancing mind, body and spirit,” said WOA President Joël Bouzou OLY. “The OLY Arts Committee will further strengthen this ideal by exploring opportunities to blend sport and culture during the Olympic Games and beyond.”

Roald Bradstock, who competed in javelin for Great Britain in the 1984 and 1988 Olympic Games, is internationally renowned for his unique artistic style and skill and the innovative techniques used in his drawings, paintings and collages. Since competing, he has spent many years supporting and promoting Olympian artists around the world. (more…)
