Music is a universal language.

It can break down barriers of all kinds. In a time of increasing inequality with regard to access to culture, the Fondation EME seeks to build a world in which all can live in dignity, with self-confidence and trust in others.

The Fondation EME is committed to inclusion.

Founded in 2009,

Their programmes are at the interface of social action, music and culture, seeking to engage audience who are not typically part of Luxembourg's culture scene. They arrange concerts in care institutions, curate music workshops for people with special needs and offer concert tickets to refugees, among many others. To find out more about their scope and mission, visit their website.
