State of Culture in Europe with Elena Polivtseva

The State of Culture 2024 Report is a non-academic policy research initiative aimed at generating a comprehensive snapshot of cultural policy affairs in Europe. The report intends to explore the essence and diversity of cultural policy priorities among EU member states and the EU itself. It will offer a distinct insight into how these priorities correlate with the concerns of various cultural sectors.

What can culture do? with Tsveta Andreeva & Stephanie Bonnici

We are living in challenging times. Wars on Europe’s borders, real climate change, increasing social, demographic, and regional inequalities; rising populism, disinformation and many more. In front of these challenges, we at the European Cultural Foundation (which turns 70 years in 2024) asked ourselves how we can make a difference with our next strategy. We invited various stakeholders to discuss the questions: What can culture do? What can philanthropy do? What can the ECF do? What can we do together? Join us! We want to hear your voice.
