Our mission is to promote and support various forms of cultural and linguistic cooperation. Our primary field of interest and fascination encompasses the Iberian Peninsula, Latin America and other Romance countries. Our projects focus on these regions. We aspire to craft a creative linguistic and cultural exchange between Poland and these incredible parts of the world in accordance with the ideas of multicultural integration and mobility. By promoting cultures and languages and undertaking international projects we aim to take part in the process of building bridges to these distant lands and societies. We seek to enable the Polish audience to discover mysteries, diversity and cultural richness of Romance countries and also fulfill the role of ambassador of Polish language and culture abroad.
For us, the Sfera Foundation is a platform for a dialogue between Romance and Polish languages and cultures. It is an open sphere of activity and various forms of cooperation, a wide range of ideas and unlimited network of contacts and most of all confidence in human possibilities. Our activity is characterised by such qualities as eclecticism, movement, curiosity and professionalism, thus we aim to constantly search new challenges as well as improve and extend our offer in the future. De Sphaeris disputandum est!
