In Dr. Kahán Éva’s life the fundamental values of democracy such as freedom, minority rights, acces to education and freedom of artistic creativity played central roles. It is through the support of these important values that the Dr. Kahán Éva Foundation pays tribute to her and her life.
The Dr. Kahán Éva Foundation was created in 2015 as a non-profit organisation with a twofold purpose. Working primarily in the area of Central Europe, the foundation’s mission is to create opportunities for young people engaged in the creative arts as well as to support the university education of disadvantaged students.
The Foundation is especially active in supporting the work of Central European artists. In doing so, it aims to enable greater cross-border dialogue with a special emphasis on fostering creativity and international understanding by allowing artists to engage in high level artistic work in an unstressed environment.
The Foundation offers the opportunity for new developments for artists from Central European countries, offers the opportunity for relaxed and high-quality artistic activities, and for the realization of works from creative impulses.
