Culture Action Europe (CAE) is a major European network of cultural organisations, artists, activists, academics and policy-makers. Our mission is to put culture at the heart of public debate and decision-making by raising awareness about the contribution of culture to the development of sustainable and inclusive societies. CAE aims at enhancing cooperation and exchange, engagement and dialogue between various players across arts and policy sectors.
CAE is the only cross-sectoral network representing all sub-sectors in culture: from performing arts, literature, visual arts, design and cross-arts initiatives to community centres and more through over 140 members from 28 countries.
Culture Action Europe explores trends in European cultural policy and creates knowledge. We connect stories, ideas and actions from local to regional to European and offer an international platform for collaboration.
