As part of the process of reconstructing society in the wake of wars and violent conflicts, artasfoundation initiates art projects and accompanies their realisation. In doing so, the foundation relies on long-term cooperation with local cultural practitioners and typically involves artists from privileged contexts in order to facilitate cross-border personal encounters and cooperation in regions of crisis.

artasfoundation explores ways in which diplomatic conciliation processes and peacebuilding mediation can be supported by specific artistic interventions.

artasfoundation networks people and organisations involved in peacebuilding and conflict mediation by means of art. It studies this field of activity and reflects on its practical work.
