Ars Civilis Foundation


Ars Civilis is a non-profit organisation that was founded in 2008.  It is based in Lorca, Spain but operates on a worldwide basis. They work for cities and people. They believe in the importance of finding synergies between tradition and innovation so that people and cities can give heritage the importance it deserves.

Their main focuses are divided into five different areas. These focuses include: cultural industries and heritage, urban strategies, innovation, and the dissemination of knowledge, education, and training.

Their main goals are to support surveys and reports that may be used to bolster innovation, to contribute to the sustainable development and preservation of natural and cultural heritage, and to promote and create networks of experts for the diffusion of knowledge.  Among their main activities are the development of the report, related to the conservation of cities; organization of events and attending events as well.



Europe Tree is a project designed to create awareness about the principles, which constitute what we know as the European Civilization. The Tree represents the growth of Europe upon strong and dense roots, with a trunk of principles which are shared by all those branches which open to the diversity of what Europe is today, thus providing shelter and food, and therein life, to all expressions of nature. Europe Tree is a cross-media project designed to run through some of these principles; non-tangible elements, which have been merged and strengthened throughout its history. This narrative is continually questioned but updated. Because Europe is an ever growing tree, that needs to be nurtured with debate, questions and, most importantly, the contribution of all its citizens. Europe Tree it is an open discussion for all social levels and all ages, to help build a narrative for generations to come.

Umayyad Legacy

The essence of Islam is a faith that does not kill, but heals. It is a religion that does not separate, but unites.  The time of the Umayyad Caliphate was when East and West merged to give birth to a new stage in the history of mankind. A time when Islam was a source and transmitter of knowledge and wisdom.  The Umayyad legacy project is a common effort to bring the past to life. It is a determination to recover our collective memory without sectarianism by celebrating a legacy that united humanity. This requires the work of many people.
