About the European Cultural Foundation
Our founders created the European Cultural Foundation (ECF) in 1954 as they envisioned a united Europe where citizens feel proudly European, a place where they can live, express themselves, work and dream freely, in diversity and harmony. Ever since, ECF promotes a European sentiment through developing and supporting cultural initiatives that let us share, experience and imagine Europe. We are a committed, ambitious, diverse, open international foundation with a strong network and long-standing reputation in partnership building across Europe. Our external work is organised along three departments: Programmes, Public Policy and Communications.
