Art, Culture & Sports

Show content of Why do we promote art, culture and sports?

Art, culture and sports bring people together, fill them with passion: Art works, inspires people to engage with the present and helps them develop creative ideas for the future. Culture inspires – across borders. It is always an encounter and an exchange. Sports connect people and motivate them to perform and show fairness.

Promoting art, culture and sports means helping to shape our society, to give it new impetus, and enabling people to have unforgettable experiences.
