The Hub of Art Foundations

About Us

 

Our Mission

To create a synergy between Art Foundations around the world, whilst sharing their individual histories, mission’s, art collection’s and public programmes with our global audience.

Our Programme

In July 2020 we launched our Art Foundation Membership programme bringing over 350 Art Foundations from around the world together to advance, in the context of common goals and shared values.

Our Story

As Founders of a not-for-profit Art Foundation, the Herman Krikhaar Foundation, we are driven by the same passion that fuels all other Founders of Art Foundations. Our goal is to promote the factors which make each Foundation unique, sharing their individual choices and the specialties they have adopted.

Since 2015 we have conducted over 20 interviews with Founders and Directors of many Foundations around the world, enabling us to share their wealth of experience and personal vision with others. We would particularly like to thank the generosity of these Foundations:
