Welcome to Artpipes' online home! Thank you for stopping by. Artpipes is an organization that very much seeks to realise the utopia of an integrated and peaceful society through the medium of cultural practices. Culture is who we are as a people, why we do what we do, as well as an integral agent in the formation of personal, group and national identities. It is a powerful medium for self-exploration, personal development and provides a much needed safe space to question and develop personal, as well as social realities. Without a cultural education, our society does not develop critical thinking skills, creative problem solving abilities, intercultural understanding or empathy. These skills are just as important for our international economy as they are for the evolution of a peaceful and co-operative gobal community for our future generations.

Artpipes e.V. is a not-for-profit organization promoting international cultural exchange and relations. It develops projects within the arts that foster an awareness of intercultural issues and strives to demonstrate the global ability to communicate and facilitate through the arts. The association's emphasis lies on integration through active participation in cultural projects that provide a reciprocal educational experience. In addition, it assists artists of high calibre to gain performance opportunities in new markets. Artpipes believes the benefits of creating cultural exchange projects resonate far wider and deeper than the performances themselves. The organization uses culture as a vehicle to connect people in our world, to share experience and develop understanding on a personal and professional level.
