About European Cultural Foundation

The European Cultural Foundation (ECF) acts as a catalyst for change through arts and culture in Europe. ECF is an independent foundation based in the Netherlands, operating across Europe for almost 60 years. We champions and transmits cultural cooperation and new forms of artistic expression in Europe as a whole. We share and connect knowledge across the European cultural sector, and advocate for the arts on all levels of political decision-making.

ECF’s Grants programme allocates to creative projects over 1 million Euro per year. Our Youth and European Neighbourhood programme develops the expertise of cultural actors of change in countries neighbouring the EU. Our digital platforms work LabforCulture and Rhiz.eu bring different communities together. 

We engage in advocacy campaigns and actions that seek to deliver a coherent and well-funded European strategy for culture. Our recent focus on cultural diversity has evolved into a unified strategy we are calling Narratives for Europe, in which community-building stories and visions with the power to renew Europe can be shared and multiplied.
