“The polarity between the two fundamentally different cultures began to dissolve within me to the benefit of a new, distinct third quality […] this is certainly no cheap compromise, it is not mere tolerance but a Synthesis.” —Prof. Ibrahim Abouleish
Since Sekem’s founding in 1977, the Founder Ibrahim Abouleish (1937 – 2017) saw Culture & Art as central to the realization of Sekem’s vision of integral human development and since 2017 it is one of the Sekem Vision Goals.
Thus Art & Culture have been an essential pillar throughout decades, embedded in the core of each of the integral spheres of ecology, culture, education and economy not as entertainment, but as a catalyst for the evolutionary impulse of the Sekem vision.
