Sign the statement: Brexit and a cultural way forward, together

Collaborations in Europe have been through turbulent times before; Europe has overcome many severe crises and has bridged deep divisions in the past. And today, now that United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union has become a reality, we, foundations & cultural institutions working in Europe respond by strengthening our ties.

The European Cultural Foundation is intensifying its activities and efforts to enable communities and individuals across Europe to co-shape their dreams, their futures, a common cultural space, with creativity and in cooperation. The European Cultural Foundation will develop new initiatives and programmes that will maintain and regenerate institution-to-institution, network-to-network, but most importantly people-to-people contacts. With this they will seek to engage as many people from different walks of life and divergent opinions as possible.

The European Cultural Foundation invites you – citizens, socially engaged practitioners, opinion makers, cultural workers and representatives of institutions – to join them in co-shaping a European cultural space!
