OUR STORY

VISION
To release the world-changing potential of young creative pioneers.
To facilitate better understanding and collaboration across borders.

MISSION
To empower young artists, photographers, filmmakers and designers to make a positive change in their own communities and internationally, through creative journeys and professional development opportunities.

To connect people across geographical, generational, racial, religious, economic and political borders.


The Crossway Foundation was founded by a group of artists who believe in the power of journeys to inspire better understanding and collaboration across borders, and to release the world-changing potential of young creatives.

The Foundation’s travel and exchange programme for young artists launched in 2007, and has since supported over 100 hundred young people from 13 countries to explore each other’s worlds first-hand.

In 2011, The Crossway Foundation was registered as a charity with the following objectives: to connect young people across geographical, generational, racial, religious, economic or political borders; and to promote creative collaboration and better understanding around the world, with a special focus on young artists in the Middle East, UK and the Americas.
