About Stichting Adar

Adar Foundation brings art and culture back to people in areas where they need to reinvent their lives. Even after houses, hospitals and schools have been rebuilt, it takes a long time before investments are possible. Adar Foundation thinks that especially in an early stage of peace building art and culture can play important roll to healing, bonding and dealing with the past. It offers people new perspectives on how to organise their society. The aim of Adar foundation is to facilitate this by building cinema’s, theatres or art academies. In both Kurdish and Hebrew Adar means March. For many Middle Easterners it is literally the beginning of the year, but also symbolically the moment when the ideals get new boost.
