CARAVAN is an international and interreligious peacebuilding arts non-profit/NGO (501[c]3) that originated in Cairo, Egypt in 2009 and is now based out of Chicago, with the objective of building bridges through the arts between the creeds and cultures of the Middle East and West. CARAVAN’s experience demonstrates that the arts can serve as one of the most effective mediums to enhance understanding, bring about respect, enable sharing, and deepen friendships between those of different cultures and faiths in the Middle East and the West. A flagship initiative of CARAVAN is the globally recognized annual CARAVAN Exhibition of Art, a unique arts initiative that brings together many of the premier and emerging artists from the Middle East and the West. These CARAVAN exhibitions have resulted in unprecedented gatherings of renowned Middle Eastern and Western artists who use art for intercultural and interreligious dialogue, and have garnered attention from the international press, media and art world, and attract thousands of visitors.
"Our purpose is to build bridges through the arts between the creeds and cultures of the East and West."
