Unifying Potentials for the Future - Culture for Peace (UPF - Culture for Peace) is a comprehensive initiative that aims to create a dynamic platform for our common sustainable future. It is to architecture a global reach by enabling talented and engaged individuals (as well as institutions and associations) from various fields of culture (science, arts, sports, and the like), to support sustainable balanced and harmonious societies.
The basic tools of the Initiative's activities relate to the design, implementation and realization of projects from different fields of culture, the organisation and support of individual cultural events, the presentation and promotion of artists, scientists and cultural workers, as well as the presentation and promotion of their (peace-related) works and activities.
The interaction of (applied) sciences and arts within the broader environment is a focal content of the activity and the leitmotiv in their implementation.
The basic prerequisite and precondition for the creation, existence and maintenance of societies and organisations oriented towards the advanced peaceful future is the existence (or establishment) of social values in which it primarily and intensively develops, supports and perceives a culture based on the initiation, creation, development and exchange of human ideas, knowledge and talents.
The establishment and enhancement of a peaceful society embedded in the environmental harmony is the only possible way forward, towards a sustainable future. To its biosocial equilibriums, it presupposes the existence of supporting web of culture, creative ideas, skills wisdoms and talents. And vice versa: The culture of supporting various ideas, knowledge and talents, directed towards a sustainable future, presupposes the existence / establishment of a peace society and its organisations.
PROJECT "CULTURE" FOR SUSTAINABLE FUTURE:
ART/ARTISTS IN FORE- AND BACKGROUND
Proudly premiers the painting of a young artist Anastasia Lemberg-Lvova, inspired
by and solely made for the theme: "Sustainable Future - quo vadis:
Process, metamorphosis, directions of movement (motion) of matter and spirit as
essential building elements of being (existence)"
It is socially acceptable to portrait confidence, success and a set of other desired
characteristics. When so, everything can continue as if, no changes are required. What if
behind such a display, an anger fear doubt or self-deprecation stands?
To explore our potentials as individuals and to unite in the wish for a prosperous future, we
need to dispense with the need to hide behind false displays and make sure that we feel valued,
worthy and capable from within oneself.
Anastasia Lemberg-Lvova (1992, Moscow) is a young artist and designer out of her two homes, in Estonia and Russia. She has received
training in Belgium, the Netherlands and she holds a BA in Fine Arts. Lemberg-Lvova
artistic explorations focus on personal introspections and reach potentials of social
engagement through aesthetics. Her works are in private collections in Belgium,
Estonia, France and Russia.
’CULTURE’ FOR SUSTAINABLE FUTURE: ART/ARTISTS IN FORE- AND BACKROUND
The project "’Culture’ for sustainable future: art/artists in fore- and background" is conceptualized as a long-term, gradually evolving and enlarging, message of visual arts.
The content of this message should correspond to a specific topic (as the central constant of the long-term cycle):
"Sustainable Future - quo vadis: Process, metamorphosis, directions of movement (motion) of matter and spirit as essential building elements of being (existence)".
The very message senders are artists from all over the world, from different fields of visual arts (sculpture, painting, photography, design) with their chosen works that reflect/express the above stated theme.
The works will be presented as a front posting (on the start-page of this website), and will rotate during the year, changing every two months. In that way the artwork presented will be the first visual impression of the ‘Culture for Peace’ website.
The artworks themselves will be exhibited within the Culture for Peace project at annual exhibitions and presentations of the project (in various countries as well as annual in-house exhibitions).
The content of the project will thus create interaction between wider audiences and artists with their respective works from different corners of the world.
The ultimate goal is to provide an open stage, a platform for the artists' inspirations, works and messages that initiate (inter)actions between authors and audiences – all aimed at the creation of a pacific and balanced society as a sine qua non for our planetary sustainable future.
NARRATIVES OF HOPE: APPLIED SCIENCE IN THE CULTURE
Project ‘Narratives of Hope: Applied Science in the culture’ gives a floor to experts from different scientific and cultural fields. The leitmotiv of all topics, irrespectively from their thematic or performing diversity, is clearly set: Sustainable futures. In the closing, rep-up segment of these events, a microphone (for Q&A) always goes to young generation. For all the others in audience that is an opportunity to listen and get inspired – by words (or performances) of experts. It is a novel journey by content and style through the challenging and engaging topics facing the forthcoming generations.
‘MUSIC AS A CULTURE’
(in elaboration/planned) - estimated start of the project: 2020
RHYTHM AND COLOURS OF CENTRAL EUROPE
-BETWEEN TRADITION AND MODERNITY-
Under the auspices of huge international gathering (‘II Media Forum 2019 – Freedom of
Journalism in the Context of Human Rights, New Technologies and Information Security’,
Praha, 20-22 November), Culture for Peace was invited as a special guest to present the
applied Fashion design project: ‘Unique K by Sofi B‘ for Vienna Fabrics and Design.
It is composed of a collection of assessors and fashioned wearing items that are solely
produced from leftovers of the famous Backhausen fabrics – materials of the top quality and
prestigious design. Numerous items of these fabrics are designed by the famous artists of the
Vienna’s Secession (German: Wiener Secession).
The ‘Unique K by Sofi B’ collection is based on amalgamation of science and arts. It is
inspired by the presence of tradition in the modern culture of Central Europe, but also by
cultural influences from far and wide (starting with France to Ottomans, and from
Scandinavia through Russia all the way to some Asian royal courts, too).
Each item in this collection is truly unique. Many have been designed from the last remaining
pieces of the unique fabrics, which is not manufactured anymore.
By leaning on rest-pieces and emphasising on quality and uniqueness, this collection
underlines its commitment to sustainable development and a green approach towards
the fashion industry.
