Global Kulture

About GlobalKulture

GlobalKulture is a collective and a youth organization for artist facilitation run by social entrepreneurs who are established musicians and artists.

GlobalKulture plays the role of a facilitator to social entrepreneurs, musicians, peacemakers, artists, or anyone who wants to make a difference today.

The organization believes that change in society can only come through mobilization of individuals, since it is only the people who can help people.

Collaboration is at the heart of Globalkulture’s mission - be it with individuals, government administrators or other organisations invested in social change.

GlobalKulture focuses on Education through Art. Hence it plays the role of a curator of cross culture exchange between different countries.

The vision that drives GlobalKulture is building an ‘art friendly’ society, where diverse art forms are accessible to everyone, especially the dying art forms , like Folk music and Tribal culture which is almost unknown to many.

The most immediate need identified by the collective is the creation of reasonable livelihood for artists through scholastic engagement, allowing arts education to improve and artists to live with independence and dignity.
