ASOCIATIA ESCU

ESCU Association stands for Education, Society, Culture, Humanity. We are a nongovernmental, independent, apolitical, non-profit organization with the primary objective to promote multiculturalism, intercultural dialogue through actions and projects that increase the public’s level of tolerance and education, stimulate volunteering and encourage and promote the concept of diversity and inclusion and increase community awareness regarding issues of cultural differences. In this context, we develop projects to promote multiculturalism and intercultural dialogue in order to increase the degree of closeness of the both Romanian and the European public to other cultures in the world. With this purpose in mind we created the first multicultural event in Romania, The Embassies Festival (Festivalul Ambasadelor) in 2014, which has grown into one of the most important and complex cultural diplomacy happening in South-Eastern Europe, a project with a unique multicultural concept on the Romanian cultural landscape, with more than 70 embassies, cultural institutions, international organizations and ethnic communities and minorities engaged each edition, over 50,000 active audience and more than 300 national and international press materials covering each edition of the project. The Embassy Festival has become over the years a signature event in Romania and a moment of multicultural inspiration in Bucharest, an absolutely necessary project on the country’s cultural scene, being able to celebrate the world’s cultural heritage, conveying messages of respect, tolerance and openness to the rest of the world. The event is especially an opportunity for intercultural institutional cooperation that simply invite the public to feel at a smaller scale what it truly means to be World Citizens. Following the success of the first edition of the Embassies Festival, we decided to continue developing this unique concept on the Romanian and Eastern European cultural landscape by continuing through the following editions in 2016 and 2017. The latest edition of the Festival, entitled ONE WORLD, focused on promoting a culture of understanding and diversity of the world's non-material cultural heritage, under the aegis and motivation of building a single intercultural dialogue platform between foreign communities and the Romanian public and artists.
