International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation
Yehudi Menuhin, one of the greatest violinists and humanists of the 20th century, founded the International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation in Brussels in 1991 as an international non-profit association by royal decree. His vision was to bring to life long-term projects, designed to give a voice to the voiceless, through artistic expression in all its forms. The mission of the International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation is to remind political, cultural and educational institutions of the central place of art and creativity in any process of personal and societal development. Drawing on Yehudi Menuhin’s humanist work, it initiates artistic projects that give a voice to the cultures present in Europe.
The main fields of activities: art at school (MUS-E® Network coordination), art in residence (organization of artistic residencies for young musicians), leading and participating to projects for social inclusion and intercultural dialogue, and giving multicultural concerts with strong messages.
