  • The Japan Foundation The Japan Foundation

    The Japan Foundation, established in 1972, in Tokyo, develops international cultural exchange programmes globally. The foundation’s aim is to promote Japanese culture to the world through programmes and activities in the following categories: art and cultural exchange, Japanese-language education and Japanese studies. The foundation has a global network, with 25 overseas branches in 24 countries. As part of their cultural programme, the foundation offers successful applicants support in the form of grants, research scholarships and training opportunities.

  • Fondazione Cologni Dei Mestieri d’Arte Fondazione Cologni Dei Mestieri d’Arte

    The Fondazione Cologni dei Mestieri d’Arte is a private, non-profit institution founded in 1995. Based in Milan, it promotes cultural, scientific and educational initiatives for the protection and diffusion of artistic crafts. The Fondazione Cologni’s mission is to inspire a “new Renaissance” of the artistic crafts and rescue them from the threat of extinction. Many of its initiatives focus on young people and training future generations of artisans.

  • Fondation Bettencourt Schueller Fondation Bettencourt Schueller

    The Fondation Bettencourt Schueller has been engaged in philanthropic support of the applied arts for nearly 20 years. Fully aware of the contemporary challenges facing crafts, the Foundation pursues an approach which places humans at the very centre by passionately supporting a selection of the craft sector’s protagonists in order to promote the influence of fine craftsmanship in France and abroad. The Foundation works actively to encourage the cultural exchange of French and Japanese savoir-faire. Through its commitment to institutions such as Villa Kujoyama and Manufacture de Sèvres, it promotes cultural dialogue between these two countries. Sponsored by the French Institute and the French Institute of Japan, Villa Kujoyama is the only French artist residency in Asia and the only one open to crafts. By creating these close ties, talented hands from both countries meet, nurture and challenge each other through their creative intelligence.

  • Fondazione Giorgo Cini Fondazione Giorgo Cini

    The Fondazione Giorgo Cini is a non-profit cultural institution based in Venice, Italy. Established by Vittorio Cini in 1951 with the aim of creating an international cultural centre re-integrating the San Giorgio Maggiore Island into the life of Venice and the region, today it is an important centre of humanistic studies and encourages the creation and development of educational, social, cultural and artistic institutions in the surrounding territory.
