US Iran People Friendship Society (UIPFS) is a non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening the ties between the people of the United States and Iran. It is our mission to build a bridge through educational and cultural programs between the two nations.
It is the human story of life and struggle that makes humanity one of the same, irrespective of national borders and geography. In our increasingly globalized world, citizens of each nation have the efficacy to build relationships with peoples of other nations and create a shared new global history.
UIPFS aspires to strengthen the friendship between the people of the United States and Iran through the exchange of art, language, music, and literature. These elements provide a window to the soul of the two nations offering a profound insight to their history and culture; thus, forming a stronger friendship among their people.
More specifically, UIPFS intends to implement projects including:
· Cultural exchange programs between the two countries;
· Educational programs relevant to each county’s culture, art, and history;
· Establishment of bi-cultural and bi-lingual schools in Farsi and English;
· Providing services to the Iranian-American Community in order facilitate their integration;
· To exhibit Iranian art, such as music, cinema, architecture, calligraphy, photography, painting, and traditional art in the United States.
· To exhibit American Art in Iran and facilitate American artists’ participation in Iranian venues and festivals; and
· To provide opportunities to universities, institutions, museums, cultural centers, and other organizations and NGOs to engage, communicate, and exchange cultural ideas and products.
Through these efforts UIPFS wills bolster appreciation of the American and Iranian culture between the people of the United States and Iran.
