P : I : G


PRACTICAL INTELLIGENT GENIUS FOUNDATION

The P:I:G Foundation was established by Henrik Vibskov in 2014. It is supported by donations given in exchange for Henrik Vibskov's personal contribution to educational programs and cultural activities. The Foundation is driven by a desire to give back and nurture creative talent.

"I have been doing a lot of talks around the world, participating in juries at schools and so on, and I decided that I wanted to start donating the fees for those activities to help foster some of the amazing creativity out there."


The P:I:G Foundation is dedicated to two central aims:


1. THE PIG SESSIONS:

The P:I:G Foundation holds a series of non-profit cultural events, concerts, workshops and talks.
