Over the years, THU has been telling a story; a story of struggling and restless artists, alone against the world. Slowly, they built a community, the Tribe, and they found a home, Troia. Now they are ready to lay the foundations for a new world and what stronger bond to build upon than mutual trust? They need to be brave, believe in themselves, believe in each other, believe in the power of art and the possibility of a different future.
The Epoch of Belief is here.
This theme was inspired by the opening paragraph of Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities:
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way..."
We don't know how it will end, but we know that this is how it starts. After all, believing is the first step to achieving, they say. We're not going to fear the future anymore, we're going to create it. Together. Believing in ourselves and our talent.
This is The Epoch of Belief. This is THU 2017.
