CULTURES SAVES restores hope and promotes peace in areas of conflict through the arts. Culture and the arts are early casualties of strife as communities are torn asunder and social order is disrupted. Founded and run by internationally renowned violinist Michelle Kim, CULTURE SAVES avoids politics and revitalizes local communities through the performance and promotion of the arts. By building cultural bridges between individuals and exposing them to outside organizations and groups, CULTURE SAVES shows that there is more connecting people than there is separating them.
