Bringing people together through art, culture and education

The Maimonides Interfaith Foundation is a dynamic, influential international charity promoting understanding and respect between people from the three Abrahamic faiths through the power of art, creativity, intercultural dialogue and education.

At a wider level, we also help drive discussions around key issues and challenges relating to the role of faith, religion and pluralism in the world today.

We do this by creating cultural events that connect people, organising significant debates and by developing exciting educational initiatives like Interfaith Explorers.

Among our supporters are some of the world’s most highly respected religious leaders and other prominent figures.

One of the greatest challenges facing the world today is how to effectively promote intercultural and interreligious dialogue between adherents of major world religions, as well as responding to dialogue between secular and religious segments of society in ways that create common ground and recognise differences.

We have been at the forefront of creating a nexus of intercultural and interreligious dialogue through a track record of successful arts, cultural, sporting and academic programmes.
