Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation. Art in the Community
The Daniel and Nina Carasso Foundation sees art both as a vector of self-realization and self-enrichment and as a way for people to express their citizenship and understanding of society. Art as an expression of citizenship should not be confined to a mere statement of principles. It should also express itself through action, even if that means encouraging a sort of affirmative action to benefit those most cut off from the arts. By enabling access to art for all, the Foundation seeks to strengthen the sense of belonging among people from the same class, neighbourhood, town, or family. It also aims to encourage children, adolescents and adults to look at society and perhaps themselves in a different light.
