Cultural initiatives in wider Europe are supported through our programmes and projects. Ranging from initiatives by cultural venues in The European Pavilion, local libraries in The Europe Challenge, creatives in the iPortunus programme, to cultural organisations in and around Ukraine, 220 projects are supported in 2022.
Three thematic domains define our cultural programmes, that aim to inspire people and communities to EXPERIENCE Europe – IMAGINE Europe – SHARE Europe.
All our cultural programmes focus on Europe as deeply cultural community. They engage Europeans from many backgrounds to experience the common space they share. They stimulate citizens to imagine their futures freely and open-mindedly and support the co-creation of Europe as a shared public space for everybody.
