Foundation Desire for Social Reflection and Openness
Desire Foundation

Since 1996, the Desire Foundation provides a collective action platform for public intellectuals, academic people, artists, and civic activists in the university town of Cluj (Romania) characterized by a multicultural environment but also shaped by deep social inequalities. Desire provides a flexible format for critical and transformative actions in research, community building, and advocacy mostly through projects and campaigns. The organization does not have a permanent staff; it relies on a core group of its activists and experts who secure their main employment elsewhere.
