Gulan wishes to help sustain the sense of Kurdish identity through promotion of Kurdish arts and culture, and to preserve its heritage and traditional skills for the Kurdish people and for people of all cultures and identities.
As well as organising and supporting Kurdish cultural events, Gulan plans to research and document the traditional textiles, costume and jewellery of the Kurdish people before they are lost; to collect tangible heritage and also intangible heritage in the form of memories.
