The Arthena Foundation is an interregional, non-profit foundation started by entrepreneur Monika Schnetkamp. In selecting a name that refers to the Greek goddess Athena, the foundation considers itself a go-between for art and science. With a series of complementary facilitative measures, the Arthena Foundation will further the dialogue between the fine arts and its closely related cultural disciplines.
