We are an independent, impact driven organization with more than 60 years of experience. We catalyse, connect and communicate civil society initiatives in arts and culture to work together for an open, democratic and inclusive Europe. We support cultural changemakers through grants, exchanges, and incubator programmes. Our annual ECF Princess Margriet Award for Culture highlights culture as a force for positive change. We connect people to people, the local to the European, and grassroots to policy.
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.
