In cultural life, it aims to investigate how different forms of work, cooperation and education can establish the greater ability to integrate more branches of knowledge and fulfill the expanding aspirations of a new generation.

Marina de Moses has worked in Europe, USA and Asia at the intersection of art, science, media, social challenges, and innovation for the last 30 years. Her prior affiliations include the media and governmental institutions, universities, private foundations and non-governmental organizations.

Her interest in the application of music, art and creative thinking to complex organizations and problems led to experience in innovative educational programs and social enterprises combining different fields of industry with music based thinking.

Educated in classical philosophy, psychology, with advance degrees in musicology, publicist writings and piano, she studied with world scientists in Cambridge, London-School of Oriental and African Studies; Paris – CNRS Department for African and Asian Studies; Graz – Art Academy, Institute for Afro-American Studies; Varanasi - Banaras Hindu University, Jerusalem – Hebrew University and the USA.

Her work is about developing the capacity of people as well as strengthening the ecosystem of interconnected stakeholders in the public, private and people sectors engaged in this field. She does this through consulting, providing educational and networking opportunities, producing innovative music programs, as well as conducting research and advocacy.

Marina's personal philosophy quotes

The roads the seeker may take are many and various. In search for answers I often felt like a fellow seeker, working with the great questions, rather than being an all-knowing guru around them. I aim to promote both a scientific and spiritual approach to the research, and integration of both, world's major ancient traditions and modern thought. Thus the drive to support the integrity of traditional wisdom with emergent scientific data, (contemporary science that can explain, enchant and elevate i.e. captivate one's attention and increase one's awareness) in hope to contribute to a global conversation devoted to deepening our understanding of the world and our well-being.”

Knowledge is not simply an assemblage of facts nor is it to be made synonymous with “truth” - certainly not to the absolute truth of which all human knowledge falls short. I aim for the acquisition of knowledge by the process of a keen observation of the life around us and through the process that is not restricted to one period of history, one language, one nation, or to one or two universities.”
