New York, London and Tokyo – The Apogee Foundation announced today that it is expanding its internationally recognized Synergy Programs, which are designed to enhance the creative excellence of artists and to enrich the aesthetic awareness of the public through the fostering of collaborative engagement among diverse cultural traditions. A special focus of these programs will be the promotion of mutually empowering collaboration among artists from cultures that have experienced a history of conflict.

This collaboration between gifted emerging artists from former Cold War enemies helped build a more enlightened future for people from both regions

Participants will be selected through the Foundation's Apogee Awards programs, which serve to discover artistic talent around the world. Once selected, award laureates will join in Apogee Academy programs offering holistic, multi-disciplinary approaches to developing their fullest potential together. Artist-laureates sharing these experiences will then perform in live and recorded Apogee Artists productions celebrating their shared achievements on the world stage.

In the years since its formation, The Apogee Foundation has evolved from a group of international professionals working to revitalize the collapsing arts education systems of the former Soviet Union into a philanthropic organization fostering human creative potential worldwide.

Apogee President Kenneth Schneider said "Apogee's Synergy Programs not only testify to the unique gifts with which each artist and culture is endowed but also, by bringing these creative forces into dynamic collaboration, demonstrate the power of the arts to engender new forms of understanding and to inspire new ways of living for all mankind."
