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 operate:
Our political, art and historical exhibitions, seminars and publications present a platform for
individuals from different locales, and draw attention to their "real life". People often live
far apart from one another - and not just geographically but in other dimensions
as well. Valuable knowledge gets buried and wants to be reintroduced to today's society.
Next to the FWC activities which are helping rescue knowledge for us today -- and for
future generations, we support 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
In education, we are gearing up to support the Mayan educational project
SWAN TINAMIT in Guatemala.
Though having formed only in 2010, we make a commitment to making the world a better place.
Thank you for your interest and support.
FORUM of WORLD CULTURES
we provide a forum to implant new ideas to foster unity in diversity.
Far apart from a market-driven art-scene, our goal is to draw attention to "real life" in
under-estimated regions. Choosing themes of local and global meaning, we invite our artists to interact
with people in the host country and form stable relationships.
