We bridge people and democratic institutions by connecting local cultural change-makers and communities across Europe.
For 60 years, we have been striving towards an open, democratic and inclusive Europe in which culture is a valued and key contributor. Informed by research and reflection, our current focus is Connecting Culture, Communities and Democracy.
Whether you represent an organisation or a business, whether you are an independent cultural actor, an activist or an artist, a policy-maker, a journalist, a researcher, or a citizen who is passionate about culture, engage with us through our work and our online community, ECF labs.
ECF is grateful for the longstanding partnership with the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds. As a result of this partnership ECF acknowledges the annual financial contribution – via the Cultuurfonds – from the BankGiro Loterij and the Lotto.
