Supporters and Sponsors

The Artiade Foundation worked closely among other with the AISA-EUROPE
Foundation.

This due to the fact, that at the Asia-Europe Summit – Conference 4 (ASEM) inCopenhagen on September 4, 2002 chaired by Romano Prodi, the President of the EUCommission, the ARTIADE was described as the fine example for the promotion ofcultural exchange and comprehension between nations and cultures. All of the ASEMmembers agreed with the chairman‘s proposal that there should be a collaborationbetween the ASEM and the ARTIADE Foundation. As a result, we worked together withthe ASEF (ASIA-EUROPE-FOUNDATION of the ASEM countries), and their ExecutiveDirector at that time, Ambassador Dr. Delfine Colome. Dr. Delfine Colome was also amember of the ARTIADE jury in Athens in 2004.
