Charitable organization, zeit-geist 19 is a research-led cultural enterprise that specializes in educational and cultural programs, lectures, workshops, public talks and debates, screenings, master-classes, and round tables with distinguished creative individuals, pioneers of contemporary art & culture, emerging talents, environmentalists, and entrepreneurs.
Each era has a unique spirit - a nature or climate that sets it apart from every other epoch. In German, this is known as the Zeitgeist, from the words Zeit - time and Geist - spirit. Certain thinkers have asserted that the true zeitgeist of an era cannot be known until that era has passed, others have declared that only artists and philosophers can adequately make sense of it.
Our aim is to gather representatives from various cultural segments under the umbrella of this philosophical concept, in order to explore the spirit of today.
ZEITGEIST19 Foundation is a research-led dynamic platform that was established in 2019 to operate at the intersection of culture and socio-environmental activism. Encouraging the conservation of our planet and following the model of ARTivism, our institution stands on 4 pillars: social development, cultural preservation, education and sustainability. Advocating the UN Sustainable Development Goals, our welfare mission is to take part in the fight against Global Warming.
ZEITGEIST19 strives to generate a community of thinkers, who share a similar passion for progress and appreciation for 'conscious' art to build global conversations, identify critical issues and raise awareness of injustice. We run a vast public programme online and offline including critically curated exhibitions, socio-cultural talks and workshops, digital podcasts, revvival of underutilized abandoned cultural buildings, neglected artifacts, and underrepresented history .
Our aim is to awaken and incite revitalizing movements of the community that are culture based, creative led and globally driven. Support and promote a global network of artists, creative entrepreneurs, curators, environmentalists and scholars. Inspire, encourage and empower people to lead positive social transformation.
How can we react to the challenging times of Now? How can we re-imagine the future?
