Pan Intercultural Arts is a dynamic London
based arts company using intercultural
performance work to help facilitate self
expression and promote deeper
understanding of our changing cultural identities.
We work with a diverse range of communities across London and
internationally : empowering people to use the arts as a tool for
change in their lives.
Over the last decade hundreds of young refugees and asylum seekers have joined our arts for change groups to find ways of dealing with trauma and to discover new futures far from their first homes.
Pan continues to welcome refugees and urges governments and international bodies to deal with the current crisis at source, on the journeys and here on our threshold.
The Maechler family lives just outside Zurich and has been close to me for many years.
They are a wonderful Anglo-Swiss mix, linguistically multi-faceted, and parents Philip (inventor) and Sonya (educationist) always discussing social issues (and much more) with their three children.
At Aidan, their youngest child’s christening friends were asked to donate towards Pan’s international post conflict work in Sri Lanka and now their oldest son, Lucas has delivered a great piece of fundraising for us.
