Art Alive Cultural Association is dedicated to the development of contemporary dance art, along with initiatives fostering understanding among individuals regarding post-conflict themes, empowerment through movement and storytelling, and transgenerational trauma healing. We believe that the transformative power of art has a responsibility to address societal issues, raise awareness, and drive change.

Our focus lies in the creation of trans- and multidisciplinary art projects. We strive to inspire individuals and make a positive impact on society, aiming to leave a lasting legacy by improving the world through our artistic work and personal growth programs.
