Fundación Respeto (The Respect Foundation) was set up in Donostia – San Sebastián on 20 June 2005. It is registered in the Basque Register of Foundations under number 381 and currently has its headquarters in the city of Donostia – San Sebastián itself. It is a private Foundation.

The Fundación Respeto as a Work of Art Institution was created as part of the organisation’s natural evolution and its development in diverse fields of what are known as “Spaces for Respect”.

As its articles of association state, the aim of Fundación Respeto is:

a) To disseminate, promote and foster Respect through art.

b) To maintain and disseminate the work of the “Fundación Respeto as a Work of Art Institution”.

c) To foster Respect as a vital, indispensable basis for communication between people and groups with different ideological, political, religious and sexual tendencies, in order to encourage collective understanding and promote development and social justice in all spheres of life.

d) To defend people’s fundamental rights.

e) To participate in artistic activities involving the most vulnerable and marginalised members of society, as a new means of achieving social integration through art and encouraging working groups as a new means of ensuring co-responsibility.
