Culture is the Islamic Culture Foundation’s main value, defining all of its actions and tools in its search for dialogue and development. Research, knowledge and cultural information facilitate the understanding between Muslim-majority countries and Western countries, promoting tolerance and intercultural harmony in a social environment that is becoming more and more global and diverse. Thus, culture is considered an essential part of education. Likewise, sustainability is not possible without a cultural approach. Culture, which is intrinsically linked to identity, allows improvement and development in the long term.


FUNCI encourages the promotion of cultural awareness actions oriented towards a general public, providing academic knowledge on the Islamic culture and civilization, and its link with Spain and Europe. In order to do so, it implements a multidisciplinary perspective which includes art, science, literature and philosophy, as well as the popular traditions that are part of our heritage and which are linked to agriculture, culinary art, arts and crafts, festivities and a philosophy towards life. All of these aspects are essential to understand the identity and the soul of cultures.
