Power of Culture
Funded through the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands, the Power of Culture has two aims: to review art and culture projects centered on human rights, education, the environment, emancipation and democratization; and to offer up-to-date information on cultural organizations in Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean and Southeast Europe, and on their progress in promoting culture in policy matters. The Power of Culture offers a Calendar of cultural events in the Netherlands and worldwide, along with Specials that highlight yearly initiatives such as Images of Shifting Culture and Focus on Migration. The Guide offers information on culture and development organizations such as expert centers, museums and festivals. The Archive is for searching the site according to key word, theme, author or section.
