Wings of Change: Aripa Arte Elevating Romanian Artists Globally


We, John Bishop and Bogdan Mihai, are delighted to announce the establishment of the Aripa Arte non-profit organization. The name "Aripa" holds a significant meaning, translating to "wing" in Romanian. This linguistic choice is deliberate, as it forms the foundation for the name Aripa Arte, which can be interpreted as "The Arts Wing." This title encapsulates our vision of Aripa Arte as a guiding light, symbolizing renewed hope and boundless possibilities within the realm of the arts.

At the core of Aripa Arte's existence is a deeply rooted commitment to the empowerment of Romanian artists. Our mission encompasses a multifaceted approach, ranging from providing comprehensive support through various developmental programs to facilitating a global platform for artists to showcase their work. We firmly believe in the transformative power of the arts, envisioning them as wings capable of propelling artists into uncharted territories. Through this metaphorical flight, artists can explore new horizons and share their creative expressions on an international stage.
