UPF is an association based in Romania and Hungary, working on performing arts and other cultural projects that facilitate the collaboration between artists on an international level - and within that, we mostly introduce Eastern European creators to the West or more likely we introduce the West to them. Our goal is to help them connect on a very personal peer to peer level , because we believe that personal direct experiences have the biggest impact on us and our work. Thus we always try not to frame our projects, keep them as close as possible to the reality of everyday life and keep them non-institutionalised. This means that the form and structure of our projects are always changing, depending on the needs of the given artist or commission. The one principle that remains the main focus of our organisation us the idea that by getting to know someone else's reality from up close, one can not only bring down stereotypes, assumptions and fears but also gain a new perspective of oneself and one's environment and identity.
