Helen Patton

Founder of Patton Stiftung: Sustainable Trust

Helen’s work in supporting multi-ethnic cultural ventures, including challenging locations such as the Balkans, Africa and the Holy Land, is testament to her determination not to shirk from conflict but to embrace and channel it through cultural exchange and artistic dialogue.
She is a performing arts professional of long standing; as a writer, singer, actress, producer and director, her experience in stage, television and film includes credits in the United States, the UK and Europe.  She received her Master of Fine Arts from Northwestern University in Chicago and completed her graduate studies at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in London.
Underscoring her commitment to honor the service of those in military uniform she has toured from the Arctic Circle to the Sinai Peninsula and along the former Iron Curtain.

Amongst her proudest recognitions is a special citation she received from the U.S.-based Chapel of Four Chaplains, which recognizes “persons who have rendered service to humanity without regard to race, religion or creed.” On the occasion of the celebrations of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of Europe, France awarded Helen Patton with the Legion of Honour.
