An initiative that champions itself at such a high level and with so much real dedication for art, and in turn makes the city, its residents, and its guests a wonderful gift, deserves support.

I dedicate myself to the Salzburg Foundation because I believe in art’s power of transformation. To see my hometown, which also occasionally bears the heavy distinction of “World Cultural Heritage”, in a new light, to challenge the norm, and to take up a new perspective: for that to happen, I would gladly like to contribute within the scope of the opportunities available to me.
