WHAT is a nonprofit cultural association that integrates and spreads knowledge and critical thinking. Integration is achieved by mixing the three great classical branches of knowledge —Arts, Sciences and Humanities— with three spheres —Individual, Society and Environment—, giving rise to contents of disciplines as diverse as philosophy, cinema, politics, psychology, history or physics, among others. Spreading is carried out with a rigorous attitude and a playful spirit, through both offline and online channels, mainly WHAT A MEET and WHAT A MAGAZINE.

WHAT is born in 2012, in a dizzy social context with a certain smell of change, to promote a calm and conscious reflection on the world we humans are creating for the future, and it does so with a language capable to reach as many people as possible.

WHAT is We Humans Are Together.

WHAT needs financing in order to exist —profit is a very different thing— and doing it all the interested people together is coherent with the aim of the project, distributes efforts and allows to maintain independence.

WHAT commits to use each penny in a responsible way and only and exclusively for this project. If you are interested in collaborating, financing or simply getting further information, please send an email without any obligation. Thanks in advance.
