Cross-sectorial Cooperation for Peace and Prosperity. Through Creativity and Culture.

Partner of the digital platform

Maximizing the impact and value generated by cultural and creative activities.

As an artist, I firmly believe in the power of co-creation and international collaboration to foster cultural richness and dialogue among people, all while keeping in mind the pursuit of excellence in our work.

The exposure to the rest of the world has great capacity in making greater artists all round. Creation and ideas do not exist in isolation so when artist come together, from different parts of the world, there is a lot of richness in what is being exchanged and created. There is so much power in collaboration!

Acting in society and the economy

Creative and cultural activities have a broad impact. They produce millions of jobs worldwide, spill over with innovation advancing other sectors, and crete economic ties across the globe. They are a main tool of soft power and of intercultural dialogue. In society they create systems of shared values that generate cohesion and common visions for the future. The active participation in creative practices induces well-being and improves lives by generating a sense of belonging.
