RIO DE JANEIRO, August 9th 2016 – The International ArtsGames Committee gains enormous momentum in its aspiration to provide artists with as many benefits as the Olympics provides athletes.  Representatives from world-renowned arts federations, structured like sports federations such as FIFA, FIBA and FINA, will attend the press launch of the ArtsGames. The audience will be treated to an exclusive multidisciplinary artistic showcase staged this Thursday, August 11th, at the Rio Media Center (RMC).

Launching the first multidisciplinary nation vs nation medaled arts competitions, the ArtsGames’ objective is to aggregate the top arts competitions in the world. It will provide a global platform upon which the world’s greatest artists and entertainers will attempt to elevate their nations to the highest step on the podium in five different art forms: dance, media arts, visual arts, literature and music. The head office of the ArtsGames is in Montreal, which will be the host city of the inaugural 2018 edition.
