The Cornelius Foundation is a think tank committed to understanding (and expanding) the transformative power of art. It achieves this through research & development, focused on delivering lasting and pragmatic solutions to bridge art and people. The Foundation mission is to understand the interaction between art and people, with the view to enhance such links and disseminate best practices. The foundation’s strategy relies on establishing innovative associations across society. The purpose is to conduct programmes on research & development, with a focus on experimentation and multi-disciplinarity, so as to redefine problems outside of normal boundaries and reach solutions based on a new understanding of complex situations. The think tank stimulates opportunities for the exchange and advancement of ideas through a knowledge network, academic research, seminars, residencies, pilot projects, dinners, workshops, labs, etc.
