YOU are our featured people. We want to know what your vision of public space is.

While our open call to submit an innovative, daring idea for cross-sectoral collaboration that engages people in re-defining and shaping “public space” has come to a close, we are still running the online campaign for people across Europe and beyond to share their vision of what public space is. Join now and share your #PublicSpaceis 

ECF is very pleased to have been granted the CBF hallmark. CBF promotes trustworthy fundraising and expenditure by reviewing fundraising organisations in the Netherlands and giving information and advice to government institutions and the public.

Receiving the hallmark is a reward for all the hard work we do and demonstrates that we care as much about our organisation as we do about culture in Europe.

The Value of Upscaling Local Practice and Knowledge - a report. The first six partner institutions of our new Networked Programme came together in Amsterdam for two days in May to learn and share.

These six new “hubs” will be pivotal under ECF’s new thematic focus, Connecting Culture, Communities and Democracy, which will run through our work until 2016. Read our report from the meeting.
