EU Cultural Relations Platform
Global cultural relations are catalysers for engaging Europeans with critical questions about their worldwide historical responsibilities and the systemic issues of our times. Cultural professionals are mediators and multipliers for connecting Europeans with the contemporary challenges of citizens and communities around the world.
ECF has long been advocating for more culture in EU external relations. Together with a partner consortium of European cultural institutes, networks and universities, we contribute to the new EU Cultural Relations Platform. Until 2023, ECF will design and offer a series of annual exchange and learning experiences for leading cultural professionals from around the world and Europe. Our new programmes will support the EU Platform in its aims to ‘promote and facilitate sustainable cultural exchanges, people-to-people activities, and co-creation processes between Europeans and citizens from countries all over the world.’
