Arts & Culture

The Foundation’s focus in this program area is on our country’s heritage, i.e. our archeological, artistic, architectural and environmental assets, libraries, historical archives and museums as well as performing arts and other arts & culture events.

Owing to the breadth and depth of the field and related challenges, the Foundation has elected to focus on promoting best practices which set an example and can be disseminated. Restoration, for example, is pursued not for mere conservation purposes, but in view of capitalizing on our heritage, and also to enable its enjoyment by the large public.

In the performing arts sphere, the Foundation works to increase opportunities for artistic expression and broaden public participation, especially among those who are less privileged.
