Dear Visitors to FORUM of WORLD CULTURES,
as more people tend to live in urban centers,
a need for knowledge of each others' cultural backgrounds
becomes more pressing. We cannot stay "illiterate"
when it comes to the heritage of others.
Knowledge and interest about each other is fundamental to mutual understanding, both
on a local and global level.
Recent religious and political conflicts have reminded us of the possible result of a lack
of knowledge about one another.
How we engage:
Our art and historical exhibitions, seminars and publications present a platform for
individuals from different locales, and draw attention to their "real life" in oppose to a mediated or
school-taught idea of it. In today's global world, we need to learn much more from and about the
various cultural-religious dimensions. Paying attention to such detail and incorporating it in our
lives is one of the FWC goals.
Please help us in this endeavor.
FWC furthermore supports others who thrive in the same direction of deepening
a meaningful life as human-beings.
Therefore, through our event revenues and donations, we support ecologic, educational,
humanitarian projects in Africa and Latin America.
For example, in 2012 FWC collaborated with the organization PHILANTHROPE, which
represents UNESCO-project World-Green-Lungs's efforts in tree planting in a
Thank you for your interest and support.
FORUM of WORLD CULTURES
we provide a forum to implant new ideas to foster unity in diversity.
Art: Far apart from a market-driven art-scene, our goal is to draw attention to "real life" in under-estimated regions.
Choosing local and global issues, we invite our artists to interact with people in the host country and thus form stable relationships.
