Our Mission

Planet of Art is not only a dazzling show, but it is also a finely organised platform that allows for interactive exchange of different cultures. Our festival brings together the best artistic and musical collectives from many cities and countries from all over the world. Each and every one of them shares their unique national background and traditions through the universal language of art, thereby bringing different nations closer to each other. Symbolically it’s the children that become the ambassadors that represent their home countries positions in cultural respect and peace.

Many of the traditions shown go back centuries, which makes the festival historically enriching as well - mostly it’s the history of music, theater, cartoon and movie productions.
Festival’s repetoire includes the cultural masterpieces, which reflect on the events of both native and world history. The festival shows the many ways culture shapes a PERSON.

Thanks to the festivals’ considerable charity program nobody is left out of the celebrations.

We look forward to seeing you on “Planet Of Art” events
