Szubjektív Értékek Alapítvány (SVF) was founded in 2002. The primary aim of the founder, Levente Bod, was to struggle against racism.
Cultural events on the UN Day Against Racism are among the foundation’s main activities since 2001. These events approach the theme of discrimination and human rights; usually targeting a young audience. Besides, professional round table discussions, music events, trainings, video presentations, exhibitions and games attract the attention of people to the social problems of discrimination and racism.
The foundation is an accepted and active member of the largest European-level antiracist network, United for Intercultural Action. SVF was responsible for organising a conference in Budapest in 2010 with the participation of the representatives of 40 countries.
Besides smaller scale cultural events, our team is responsible for organizing regular events at the Europe Point (the cultural and information centre of the Hungarian Representation of the European Commission and the European Parliament) since 2011; organized an open-air festival with 6000 visitors on the Europe Day in 2012; organized Lunar New Year Festival with 10.000-10.000 visitors in 2013 and 2014; coordinates a volunteer program on the biggest Hungarian festivals (with the participation of 1000 volunteers annually), such as Sziget Festival, since 2011; and organizes annual Music Against Racism concerts on the UN Day Against Racism.
Since 2009, the foundation is participating in the international ROOTS & ROUTES network. We are coordinating different types of training program for young talented people who are active in the field of performing, visual and fine arts. Also, we organized business-related trainings for third country immigrants who live in Hungary and aim to start an enterprise in the country.
Another important goal of the foundation is to organize tolerance trainings for children and teachers in schools. Within this program, we approach to introduce racism as a current problem, and show how to work in a multicultural environment.
Subjective Values Foundation – in Hungarian language: Szubjektiv Értékek Alapítvány – is active in the fields of the arts, poverty, talent-scouting, anti-racism, diversity, cycling and sustainability.
