Art & Children

Art opens up new possibilities of expression and ways of looking at life and others. The International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation believes this should start from earliest infancy. Since 1993, our MUS-E® programme is helping primary school children in 13 countries to embark on a journey to greater fulfilment and self-knowledge through the arts.

Ambassador Artists

The International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation is fuelled by continuous collaboration with artists from all cultures. Our Ambassador Artists are the spokespersons of the values embodied by Yehudi Menuhin and promoted by the International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation: creativity, integration, sharing, respect for diversity, and transmission.

Social Inclusion

An important mission of the International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation is to raise awareness, recognition and inclusion of cultural minorities. We act as an ambassador for underrepresented groups, ensuring their voices are heard at European level. The Assembly of Cultures of Europe (ACE) is one of the ways we promote intercultural dialogue.

Yehudi Menuhin

I have been fortunate to get to know other human beings through music. I was influenced by my father who sang melodies which had their roots in the old Hassidic cultural tradition. And I was also helped by George Enescu who introduced me to the sounds of Hungary and Romania. We should share our art, our landscapes, our sorrows and our joys, we should widen our horizons. Thus we will gain true understanding of groups of human beings who are suffering from persecution.
