ABOUT THE JIMMY NELSON FOUNDATION

OUR VISION

Our world is changing. It’s an inevitable process and it’s advancing at a speed like never before. From a life spent traveling, Jimmy Nelson has experienced that his camera is more than just the perfect tool for creating connection. For years, his camera has proven to be invaluable in showcasing cultural diversity. A cultural diversity with an uncertain future.

HOW CAN YOU CONTRIBUTE?

DONATE NOW!

The Jimmy Nelson Foundation shares the wealth of a culturally diverse world. We fund cultural projects that celebrate, fortify and educate about our world’s cultures. With your support we can keep realizing fantastic ideas.

 

By making a contribution you are fostering an appreciation for cultural diversity and help to connect people from different cultures to learn from each other’s knowledge.

 

We need your involvement. You can join Jimmy today. By donating or becoming a Friend of the Jimmy Nelson Foundation, you enable our projects. Let’s celebrate the world’s cultural diversity.

PARTICIPATE

We fundraise to support your project. We invite people to present us their projects that can support the world to celebrate its polychromatic cultural identity.

 

We are looking for projects that are centred around cultural diversity and expression, with a focus on indigenous cultures. Projects we support are based on equal cultural exchange, have clear outcomes and a limited running time.

 

If you would like to know if your project meets the funding criteria, please see the open calls below and submit your project here.
