Stichting / Fundation Urban Stylistix
Urban Stylistix is a multidisciplinary urban culture and arts foundation registered and located in Amsterdam, Netherlands. We want to develop activities in the cultural and artistic sector at a local and European level. These activities include, but are not limited to, contemporary art exhibitions, urban art festivals, international artist exchanges, artist in residence program and educational trainings.
The Foundation has a strong focus on:
• promoting and actively supporting the creative collaboration and inter-cultural exchange of artists,
• expanding our network of international, high-profile and creative artists and like-minded organizations,
• discovering and supporting the development of up and coming talented artists,
• engaging in the cultural and artistic sector at the European Union level,
• increasing public interest in urban and contemporary art forms through our social, cultural and art events.
Urban Stylistix is committed to provide the necessary resources to empower artists to bring their work to the next level regarding creativity and innovation. The foundation creates through its events important spaces and the necessary tools for networking and sustainable communication, among the participating artists in Amsterdam, at the European level as well as internationally; havig as a result a comprehensive network of active artists and organizations from the urban and contemporary art scene. We support new forms of artistic expression as well as encourage exchanges that evolve into positive artistic interventions, dynamic European-wide cultural networks and future cultural events across national borders to provide a milestone into the cultural development of a city or specific scene in the context of urban art.
Urban Stylistix believes that culture and art engages and inspires people to transcend their own boundaries. The connecting power of culture is essential for creating open, inclusive and democratic societies, and as such it is of great value for the creation and sustainability of cohesive Europe. By connecting people, promoting mutual understanding, advocating inter-cultural learning, highlighting cultural diversity and supporting the sense of European citizenship Urban Stylistix serves as hub and empowerment tool for artists, organizations and foundations interested in cross-cultural and international artistic exchanges.
