Associazione Connecting Cultures
Founded in 2001 in Milan, Italy, the association Connecting Cultures is dedicated to promoting social, cultural, and environmental sustainability through art and design. The association has become known for its work in fostering new and inclusive solutions to the complex and multifaceted issues of sustainability – issues that we, as active global citizens, feel it is our duty to address.
Our vision is to create a vibrant community of diverse individuals who are inspired by our message and who understand, support, and actively work towards a sustainable future. We accomplish this through platforms for discussion, research and education and projects that train young professionals to work together with these aims in mind.
Connecting Cultures is a recognized expert in sustainable fashion and the redefinition of public spaces in marginalized rural and urban areas within Italy. In addition, Connecting Cultures publishes papers and books on thought leadership, curates art exhibitions, and organizes conferences, seminars, and workshops, all with the sole aim of utilizing art and design to raise awareness and empower local communities in Italy and beyond to act sustainably.
