Fondation Sommer is a foundation under Luxembourg law. It was created in 2016 with the aim of strengthening the empowerment of children and young people through arts and culture in Luxembourg. In this context, Fondation Sommer annually supports several participatory projects, working with arts and culture as tools for emancipation and involving children/youth and their families and communities.
Fondation Sommer has thus set itself the goal of creating, through its projects, a positive social and cultural impact: It wishes to develop the capacity for reflection among young people and to commit itself to an open, enlightened and cohesive society. It wishes to contribute to the creation of knowledge and the exchange of transdisciplinary experiences. Finally, through the projects supported, it would like to promote mutual understanding between people and communities.
The Sommer Foundation is grieving for its founder and former president, Pierre Brahms, who has passed away on November 5, 2019.
