The House

The Radial Stiftung is part of the "Radial System" and was founded in 2006 as a foundation under German civil law. The visionary notion of a providing space for cross-genre artistic performance forms is in need, now more than ever, of a stable foundation of commitment and engagement without the daily financial pressures of a privately-financed cultural institution. With the help of donations and endowment contributions to the Radial Stiftung we hope to create a sustainable financial network to serve the principle of creative dialogue.

The Radial Stiftung supports exemplary artistic productions from and between the art forms of dance, music and visual arts. Moreover, the foundation aims to contribute to the creative development of people of all ages and from all walks of life with the help of integrative artistic educational projects. A special focus is placed on projects that explore the principle of dialogue. The Radial Stiftung supports RADIALSYSTEM V as an exemplary platform for exchange, but it is also active in other venues in Berlin and is planning to go international in the future.
