daughter funds

Design and music are among the strongest tools we have to express our feelings and emotions, our political views and culture. As the creative process emanates from the deepest part of a person’s soul, these art forms have an impact on people from all cultures throughout the world.

Aurora’s daughter funds, Kraumur Music Fund and Aurora Design Fund, were founded with this in mind.
