"Artemis is the Goddess of boundaries, of uncivilized, uncultivated fields, of borders, of the woods and mountains beyond the city... Artemis is the lord of the stranger in us and the stranger in the city, of everything that we are not, but still part of ourselves... Her role is to fuse the different into the social mind... The city-state of Athens takes her as its Goddess. She is carrying the barbaric sign of strangeness, and her role will be to change the different into the similar."
Jean Pierre Vernan
The Artemisszió Foundation has been operating since 1998 as a non-profit organization of public interest. The founders were young anthropologists who wanted to apply their theoretical knowledge and the results of their scientific research to foster social and personal development and open-minded thinking. The Artemisszió Foundation is aiming to achieve its objectives through the research, promotion and use of the theory and practice of intercultural communication.
The goals of the Artemisszió Foundation are:
- to encourage continuous dialogue and interaction between culturally, ethnically and socially diverse groups and to foster their mutual understanding,
- to support the social integration of socially and culturally disadvantaged groups,
- to strengthen scientific and cultural relations internationally
- to develop and disseminate intercultural training courses, educational materials and methods
The mission of the Foundation is to provide an opportunity for the widest possible section of society to take part in activities that develop competencies that strengthen relations among people, improve communication and conflict-resolution skills, and contribute to the development of tolerance, mutual understanding and cooperation. For us it is a priority to include socially disadvantaged groups - the unemployed, people living in rural areas, the Roma and immigrants - to increase their equal opportunities and to fight social exclusion.
In a culturally ever more complex world, learning about cultures "other" than our own and acquiring the ability for dialogue are not only important tools for preventing conflicts but are also an essential means to self-knowledge, open-minded thinking and independence. The Foundation considers it a vital task to offer the opportunity to the widest possible part of society to take part in activities that contribute to the development of the above skills.
Artemisszió Foundation devotes special attention to creating equal opportunities for ethnically or socially disadvantaged groups. Our activities are aimed at encouraging the social integration of these groups (unemployed young people, the rural population, the Roma). In line with these aims, the Foundation has been using various means of approaching and involving in its activities the representatives of these groups as well as the organizations in contact with them.
The Artemisszió Foundation is aiming to achieve its objectives through the research, promotion and use of the theory and practice of intercultural communication.
