Aim of Setar Association is promotion and support of Iranian Culture in Switzerland and furthermore in Europe. We follow two aspects: spreading knowledge about the Iranian and Oriental Culture in Switzerland and in Europe, and offering a platform to Iranian people living in the European context, where they can continue living and experiencing their own culture. Thus we support cultural exchange between the host-country and Iranians living there.

This is being achieved through various activities:

  • organizing of cultural events such as music concerts, exhibitions, traditional festivities, courses, and alike.
  • distribution of media (such as CD/ DVD etc.) in the cultural context.
  • organizing speeches on cultural and historical issues, and readings of Iranian literature or Swiss or European literature related to Iran.

All events serve solely the purposex mentioned above, and are independent of any national, religious and political interests.
