The idea of art was born along with the development of human civilisation. Throughout the centuries it has evolved into many different types, providing new areas of expression for artists who are today well recognised. Talent, ability to reach a wider audience and opportunity to communicate emotions made art one of the essential parts of culture.
In its desire to promote the influence of art on culture, The Three Bridges Foundation, apart from supporting national artists, has also been active on the international stage. In this respect, it has organised a painting competition in one of Ukrainian schools and an excursion to the theatre for first-year pupils. In addition to competitions the Three Bridges Foundation organises exhibitions, vernissages, cultural excursions, painting contests and other art-related events. Many young, innovative artists have gained recognition thanks to our efforts.
Education is a primary element of knowledge and mental development. It is a process of gaining knowledge that leads to changes in behaviour under the influence of acquired experience and the understanding of the surrounding world. The tendency of disseminating vocational and general education gained momentum in the 15th century. The invention of printing press allowed to use printed books in education.In order to support such an important element our organisation continues to search for various solutions that can expedite development and education of the young generation. Granting a scholarship, funding doctoral dissertation and donating audiobooks to the youth were among the first initiatives of the Three Bridges Foundation.
Culture is perceived as the whole of material and spiritual heritage of society. One of its fundamental parts is science that helps understand the world around us. Science develops on the grounds of a test method that serves the purpose of finding and revealing the truth. One of key problems of science is to show whether a theory is true or just a scientific theory.
Aristotle, philosopher of ancient Greece, divided science into three areas. According to the philosopher, the most important is theoretical science (metaphysics, physics, mathematics), followed by practical science (politics, ethics) and poetical science being the least significant.
