The Quest for wisdom foundation (QFWF) aims to stimulate the intercultural art of living.
In doing so, the QFWF wants to contribute to a culture of openness, inclusion and cultural diversity: inter-esse or ‘being in-between’ as the basis for the intercultural art of living by tapping into one’s own and shared historical inter-cultural roots and wisdom traditions.
The QFWF is a non-profit organization and has cultural ANBI status.
Its mission and vision is visualized in the Wheel of intercultural art of living.
Three Quests of the QFWF
In order to achieve its mission, the QFWF shapes its objectives as three Quests for wisdom.
With the three Quests, the QFWF sets the Wheel of the intercultural art of living in motion:
- Quest 1 — the Wisdomweb collects and elaborates wisdom from all over the world as a digital spider web and platform for exchange.
- Quest 2 — een Golden ratio develops wisdom from all over the world into educative materials, such as (digital) forms of play and dialogue, and storytelling.
- Quest 3 — living encounters by organizing the annual QFWF Meeting Day, workshops and masterclasses; and capturing it on the QFWF video channel.
Animal Wisdom Program
The intercultural storytelling program Animal Wisdom is part of Quest 2: storytelling is one of the five pillars, next to play, dialogue, games, with which the Golden Ratio of intercultural educational material is designed.
The services and products offered on this website contribute to inclusion and cultural diversity for life in the cosmopolis; with artistic materials, e-books, teaching materials aimed for global citizenship, animations, art dialogues and game forms.
