Artpipes e.V. / Germany

Core Culture

Culture is who we are as a people, why we do what we do on a daily basis, as well as an integral agent in the formation of personal, group and national identities. The Arts are a powerful medium for self-exploration, personal development and provide a much needed environment to question and develop personal, as well as social realities.


A cultural education allows our society to develop critical thinking skills, creative problem solving abilities, intercultural understanding and interpersonal empathy. These skills are just as important for our international economy as they are for the evolution of a peaceful and co-operative global community for our future generations.


Artpipes e.V. is a not for profit organisation promoting international cultural exchange and relations. It develops projects within the arts that foster an awareness of intercultural issues and strives to demonstrate the global ability to communicate and facilitate through the arts.


The association's emphasis lies on integration through active participation in cultural projects that provide a reciprocal educational experience. In addition, it assists artists of high calibre to gain performance opportunities in new markets. Artpipes believes the benefits of creating cultural exchange projects resonate far wider and deeper than the performances themselves. 


Our organization uses culture as a vehicle to connect people in our world, to share experience and develop understanding on a personal and professional level.

Artpipes realises projects that embody its philosophy in today’s cultural landscape. We are responsible for conceptual development, managerial  support, fundraising, tour management and production, marketing and publicity, in cooperation with contributing artists during the tenure of projects.

We provide an extremely generous  service, however please refer to our terms and conditions for participants. Artpipes exercises a stringent process to ensure projects undertaken are reciprocal and beneficial for all parties involved.
