The +421 Foundation enhances relations between the Slovak people and the world by showcasing the cultural richness of Slovakia to International audiences and by creating opportunities for mutually beneficial interaction in the cultural sphere and beyond.
Based in the United States, our name derives from the international telephone calling code for Slovakia +421. Our aim is to generate visibility for Slovak arts and culture and for humanitarian issues facing Slovakia today through art exhibitions, performances, educational workshops, and cultural events.
