Since August 24th 2009 CULTURESCAPES is a foundation. The non-profit foundation CULTURESCAPES was created as the organizer of the festival with the aim to support culture and the cultural exchange between Switzerland and other countries in a sustainable way.
Over ten years ago, CULTURESCAPES for the first time became an active promoter of culture and cultural exchange. Since then, the festival has become an institution without which the active cultural life of Basel and now even Switzerland cannot be imagined.
The goal of the foundation is especially to organize the festival CULTURESCAPES in cooperation with cultural institutions in Switzerland and abroad, and in this way to contribute to international understanding between the different cultures.
All forms of culture and art, such as music, theater, dance, literature, movie, visual art, art involving new media and academic exchange, should be promoted and supported.
The foundation bases on sustainability in order to represent the goals and values of CULTURESCAPES continuously.
