KfW Stiftung is an independent non-profit foundation set up by Germany’s state-owned development bank KfW in 2012. The foundation engages directly with the major challenges facing our world—globalization, environmental protection, climate and demographic change. We support initiatives questioning established patterns, identify alternative strategies and offer platforms for cross-border exchange. Our aim is to encourage pioneering ideas, to create a diverse economy, environment, society and culture and to take responsibility for the world we live in.

Our mission in the arts is to stimulate intercultural dialogue in today’s globalized world. KfW Stiftung creates various platforms for international contemporary arts, allowing creativity, freedom of speech and discourse to thrive in an effort to bolster cultural diversity. We aim to advance exchange between those working in culture in Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia by supporting local projects as well as international programmes, such as residency programs for up-and-coming artists and curators, writers’ workshops for emerging authors in the Middle East or artistic encounters in music and performance.
