Being convinced that every human being is a “part subject of culture”, the association CULTUR’ALL has given itself the objective of
- Raising public and political awareness of the content of Article 27 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
- Support and promote the access to all forms of culture for people who are far from it, especially for those with socially or economically weak background.
- Encourage to participate and contribute to cultural life, not only as consumers, but also as actors – especially for the poorest and the excluded.
- Promotion of cultural diversity and inter-social and intercultural dialogue.
- Support the cultural mediation and the development of synergies between politics and the social environment.
CULTUR’ALL believes that participation in cultural life – both as an actor and a consumer – is not just a right, but also a crucial need for human development. No man should be rejected for any reason. Above all, a large part of the population suffering from a disability, isolated from society or originating from a minority or economically disadvantaged group does not yet benefit from these basic rights to participate in cultural life. However, the respect and implementation of cultural rights are preconditions for the development of individual and collective capacities, cohesion and social justice. They play a relevant role in fighting poverty and social exclusion.
Moreover, culture is an inseparable part of the identity. The demographic context of especially the Grand Duchy established the intercultural dialogue and the recognition of cultures from immigrants as a basic necessity. The culture, the art and the creation enable the encounter and promotion of every civilisation. Cultural diversity should be seen as a wealth and added value through cultural fusion.
We believe that the inter-social dialogue is an important aspect of intercultural dialogue. Therefore we have to focus on supporting encounters – not only between people from different cultures, but also between people from different social classes.
