The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom
The Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom, founded in 1958, has offices in more than 60 countries around the world. From the very beginning, the issues of culture were crucial for the activities of the Foundation, it is not by chance that Walter Erbe, Professor from Tübingen, a liberal politician dealing with cultural issues, was elected its first chairman.
Today, "Open Society and Culture" remains one of the main areas of the Foundation activities: the project "Artist and Tyrant - How to Promote Freedom through Art" brought together more than 100 participants in Tbilisi, where musicians, artists, poets, gallery owners from Eastern Europe shared their insights and practices, creative thoughts about freedom in general and, of course, about freedom of creativity.
Since its inception in 1993, the Moscow Branch has partnered with museums, galleries and theaters. Alanica Festival has been the pearl of such cooperation for several years now.
