Holding-Hände

The IOSFS Board stands unambiguously against acts of terrorism, hatred, violence and bigotry in all its forms. We foster respect for and adherence to human rights and human dignity in all situations.

 

Our work as Orff-Schulwerk educators demonstrates the core values of a democratic society: we strive to create community in which diversity and tolerance are actively nurtured. We seek to educate our students to become purposeful citizens in their own country and in the world.   

All people deserve the freedom to live their lives in safety and with respect.

The International Orff-Schulwerk Forum Salzburg (IOSFS) is a non-profit registered association.

It is an international network of Orff-Schulwerk Associations, Associated Schools and related Institutions worldwide.

The International Orff-Schulwerk Forum Salzburg does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, age, national origin, disability, marital status, or sexual orientation, in any of its activities. These activities include, but are not limited to, hiring and firing of employees, admission of members, selection of vendors, and provision of services.

We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, volunteers and patrons.
