Transformation through the Arts

CARAVAN is an international arts NGO/non-profit that is recognized as a leader in using the arts to further our global quest for a more harmonious future, both with each other and with the earth. We believe that the arts can be one of the most effective mediums to heal our world and to creatively foster peace, harmony, wholeness and health in all its forms.


Our name "CARAVAN" comes out of the founding vision to encourage and facilitate those from diverse backgrounds and worldviews to “journey together through the arts.” An additional special focus for CARAVAN is exploring and nurturing the relationship between spirituality, faith and the arts, toward enhancing our experience and understanding of both the transcendent and of each other. CARAVAN’s artistic initiatives have resulted in unprecedented partnerships with renowned and emerging artists from all over the world, using art to transform our world.


We employ the arts to bring needed transformation in our world through:

Curating - Consulting - Connecting Coordinating - Collaborating 

Our beginning . . . Founded by Paul G. Chandler, CARAVAN originated out of artistic bridge-building initiatives in Cairo, Egypt beginning in 2009 that focused on addressing the growing chasm of discord and misunderstanding at that time between the peoples, cultures and creeds of the Middle East and the West.o

Enable transformation to take place by facilitating artistic “encounter points”

around the world



What We Do

Artistically address the issues that contribute to conflict, inequality, discrimination and environmental injustice

 in our world. This includes addressing the intersection between the arts and spirituality.
