ECF is delighted to announce the 50 Idea Makers who have been selected to attend this year’s Idea Camp in Botkyrka, Sweden from 23 to 25 September 2015. 

“...if we want to breathe clean air in cities, we need to reach as many people as possible, and art and culture are the best way to do this. Liverpool has a very strong tradition of street art and a truly radical artistic ethos, and we want to build on this.”

We talk with writer, filmmaker and activist Matthew Fox about The Liverpool Air project he has been developing following his participation to the Idea Camp 2014 and for which he received an R&D grant from ECF. 

ECF has been invited to take part to the “I am the Museum” civic initiative, and our Director Katherine Watson, together with ECF Programme Manager Philipp Dietachmair, are going to Sarajevo to participate to the action “A Guarding Shift for the Museum”.  

ECF has been supporting cultural cooperation in the Western Balkans for years and continues to do so through our ongoing collaboration with ArtAngle on the Balkans Arts and Culture Fund, and through taking part in actions such as these.

SUMMER READS - The summer months are a time for relaxation and reflection – a chance to explore new places and new ideas. With this in mind, we have compiled some recommended reading materials to accompany you on your journeys this summer – including articles and books from ECF’s own Library and some from our partners’ collections too.

We hope you enjoy them and we wish you wonderful and relaxing summer.
