Art is something to be nurtured and fostered not only during the good times. We need culture to live. It gives our lives sense. To make art is to create and shape something both in a material sense and a spiritual sense. A country's culture is the achievement of its people. It is this achievement that must be supported and promoted.
Culture in Liechtenstein is shaped by public institutions, private organisations and individuals. The latter includes artists from many different fields as well as the many citizens actively involved in cultural associations and societies.
Created on 1 January 2008, the Liechtenstein Cultural Foundation is committed to promoting cultural activities of individuals and private organisations in the fields of literature, music, performing and visual arts, audiovisual media, local culture and regional studies. A government institution, it aims to preserve the country's cultural diversity and to support artists and their work at as many levels as possible.
