Bringing Cultures Together

Without boundaries,we can actively promote cultural understanding.

 

We actively promote intercultural and interfaith dialogue and understanding through academia and creative learning. To strengthen a bridge between the world of Islam and the West, we’ve established Prince Alwaleed Academic Centers at leading universities across the globe. We also work in close partnership with the foremost centers of education around the world. Together, we begin conversations and exchange ideas. Together, we support innovative programs that use art and media to foster the global understanding needed for peace in an increasingly interdependent world.
