The Long Run

The Long Run is a fair, honest positive and creative approach to life

As Long Runners, we strive to strengthen intercultural relationships and understanding, safeguarding cultural heritage while raising awareness of cultural diversity. We want to inspire others to act in kind. Creative activities in this dimension encompass all expressions of art—from local cuisine and architecture to film and music, from sculpture to folk arts and crafts—as well as the promotion of social cohesion and cultural interaction through sport.

The flagship initiative of the Zeitz Foundation is The Long Run. The Zeitz Foundation supports the network of Long Run Destinations by providing a platform for collaboration, innovation and learning. Through financial support and via the G.E.R. certification system, the Zeitz Foundation empowers the Long Run Destinations to achieve long-lasting impact in all 4Cs (conservation, community, culture and commerce).

The mission of the Zeitz Foundation is to invest in research, listen to the experience of local communities and stakeholders and apply the knowledge gained to create and support sustainable, ecologically and socially responsible projects and destinations around the world.

The Zeitz Foundation for Intercultural Ecosphere Safety is a private charitable organisation that was founded in 2008 by German business entrepreneur Jochen Zeitz. Inspired by the efforts of conservationists, scientists, and artists, and recognising the need for furthering connectedness and alliances around the world, Zeitz founded the organisation with the intention of inspiring and achieving the highest standards in sustainability through the balance of culture, community, conservation and commerce in privately managed areas.

Re: The Long Run

Dear Jochum,

Combining the intercultural strength of sports and arts is an intriguing subject, I feel. Both are excellently positioned to bridge cultural gaps. Can we talk about our initiative for the first International Caribbean Dance festival (to be held on Curacao) that not only provides programs for international top dancers but also reaches out to the community with p.e. programs which support obesitas programs? And about the connection between sports and arts?

Looking forward to your reply!

Depth of Vision in the Long Run

The recognition of expressions of forms of "ART" being linked to a common fabric is the first obvious step in a very long journey.
That path has many more aspects to it that require 'depth' meaning and spiritual substance. These and other important elements are not being art-iculated as yet. in this writers opinion. Where is the beef?
I would hope that we can transcend the
material and physical surface representations of the spiritual "FALLOUT" most of us think is art and get to depths of vision for the long run.
Where are the initiative to help Haiti? Why is there no crisis readiness awareness in the world in any true organized prepared way. With all the disciplines fused into this 'Long Run' idea
why are we all not running to help areas in crisis on the "last colonized planet left"?

The Long Run

Excuse my ignorance please but is the above Long Run proposal meant to be a promotional piece for the Long Run? Or is it a request for artists to participate in a project by the name of "The Long run"?
