The Artist and the Others
The activities of The Artist and the Others are based on the crucial importance of the Arts for our Society, and the advantages which come with Shared Knowledge. The Foundation, initiated in 2013, supports young artists and cultural professionals starting their career in the cultural field.
Our goal is to overcome the difficulties that artists and cultural professionals encounter in the first years after their studies, because this is a critical period where they need to establish connections, and develop the knowledge and necessary skills to boost their future careers.
