The Three Cultures of the Mediterranean Foundation (Fundación Tres Culturas del Mediterráneo) was established in 1998 as an initiative of Andalusia’s regional government and the Kingdom of Morocco. Since then, principles such as peace, dialogue and tolerance have been fundamental pillars of this institution aimed at bringing together Mediterranean and Middle Eastern peoples and cultures. At a time of confrontation and exacerbation of differences leading to conflicts, exclusion and alienation, the Three Cultures Foundation is committed to fostering the coexistence of cultures and religions through mutual knowledge and the exchange of ideas and experiences with a view to bringing together the peoples from both sides of the Mediterranean rim.
The Three Cultures Foundation engages in a number of cultural initiatives, including concerts, exhibitions, seminars, and other activities with the overall aim of breaking down stereotypes and promoting respect among different peoples and religions.
Within this overall strategic framework, the Three Cultures Foundations pursues three specific objectives:
-Enhance cooperation between different regions in the Mediterranean.
-Promote the knowledge of Middle Eastern societies and cultural output and establish a permanent dialogue with civil, political, artistic and other sectors in the region.
-Serve as a link between the European Union, the Mediterranean and the Middle East.
