As Inspiration Arts continues to grow and thrive as a young organization. With the continuous growth, the organization also becomes increasinlgy international. As of January 2017, Inspiration also exists in Berlin, Germany. Berlin is located at the heart of the European continent and home to a flourishing and vital art scene. With its population of roughly 3.5 million people it is also a melting pot for people from around the world.
Israel and Germany
This is where Inspiration Arts Germany enters. We believe that Germans and Israelis have more in common than the very dark chapter of the past. Together we want to create collaborations and projects that foster mutual understanding. At Inspiration we see the potential of both countries; be it the artistic and creative potential of artists or the expertise of entrepreneurs and activists. Together we want to use them to face the most pressing social challenges of our time.
Where migration, intergration and globalization appear to present barriers to coexistence and tolerance, Inspiration Arts in Germany seeks to create dialog and connection through the arts.
Inspiration Germany’s objectives are two-fold; One the one hand it seeks to support and shape Inspiration’s ongoing projects in Israel and abroad. Secondly it focuses on East Africa – Uganda to be precise.
Inspiration Germany in Uganda
With its foundation, Inspiration Germany takes the managerial role in the realization of our projects in Uganda, in close collaboration with our partners. Mutual learning and knowledge transfer are the key-elements in this South-North cooperation. Our aim is to support the decolonization of artistic and activist practices in Uganda, and to increasinlgy integrate African philosohpy such as the concept of Ubuntu (I am because we are) into our programs.
