There was a man called Yehudi Menuhin. This man was a famous violinist and humanist of the 20th century who had a dream: to give a voice to the voiceless.
Lord Menuhin dreamed of openness towards others, peace and dialogue. He wanted, for example, all children to be able to sing and dance at school every morning. He also dreamed to see all cultures of Europe represented at the European institutions and their cultural diversity and specificities to be considered.
In 1991, he created the International Yehudi Menuhin Foundation to coordinate initiatives and European projects, through which he can realise his dreams.
“In the long term, I dare to believe that it (IYMF) will ensure the constant search for ways to access and promote a trusting communication between beings, as well as between them and nature. And this at all levels, intuitively and instinctively, with or without words, and through all the arts that allow us to share a common and reciprocal experience.”
