Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences (HARTS) through the presentation and promotion of artistic projects and theoretical knowledge resulting from the work of its members in Bosnia and Herzegovina and around the world, the Humanities and the Arts (HARTS) aims to contribute to the development of interdisciplinary research that involves the intertwining of art and other humanities disciplines.

In accordance with the basic postulate of our mission, we are open to all kinds of interactions between art, philosophy, sociology, anthropology, religion, and all other humanities disciplines that, directly or indirectly, have man and his primal need for creation as the object of their research. We are open to collaboration with all artists and art theorists, as well as cultural and academic institutions in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the region, and internationally, who are willing to share their experience through interdisciplinary cooperation and exchange. We accept artists and humanists who support these principles and are committed to creating a vision of an emancipated society, free from national-geographic constraints. We believe that such a society, through art and humanities, generously and self-critically expands awareness and knowledge about oneself and provides expression for the right to make everyday life of contemporary beings more conscious, noble and free.

Through activities such as exhibitions, music, film and theater events, publications, conferences, discussions, etc., Humanities and the Arts (HARTS) is dedicated to studying and practicing contemporary creation, as well as its traditional, technological, and hybrid forms that involve production and intellectual preoccupations. By establishing bridges between theoretical and artistic projects, different disciplines, and creators who have formed within the Bosnian-Herzegovinian cultural and linguistic heritage, but also outside the country, Humanities and the Arts (HARTS) contributes to understanding creation as a specific form of knowledge advancement.

The mission of our members also involves participation in the formation of new generations of creators as well as new educational programs. This work follows trends and expands the spectrum of issues in humanities and art disciplines, reflective and expressive experiences, as well as knowledge that is of invaluable importance for the formation of a treasury of spiritual, material, and cultural wealth and the preservation of the identity of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
