|Relais Culture Europe|
The Relais Culture Europe has been assigned the task of accompanying artists and cultural operators who are setting up projects in Europe. As a ressource centre on Europe and Culture, the Relais Culture Europe informs and accompanies artists and cultural operators in France and in Europe on the current trends and challenges linking Europe and Culture and more specifically, on Community aims, policies and programmes and how to transform them into strategies, practices and projects.
Relais Culture Europe is a non profit-making association created at the initiative of the Department of International Affairs of the Ministry of Culture and Communication. It is presided over by Ms Catherine Lalumière.
The overall aim of the Relais Culture Europe is to help include a European dimension in all projects and programmes of French cultural operators. Since it was set up in 1998, the Relais Culture Europe has been assigned the task of Cultural Contact Point for the Culture 2007-2013 programme by the European Commission and the French Ministry of Culture.
Its task is structured around two poles of activity:
« Inform and accompany » cultural operators in their initiatives and setting up of European projects by providing
« Explore and Develop » the strategies and policies at work in Europe so that all those working in the cultural sector (particularly local and regional authorities) can reflect on these issues, discuss and exchange opinions on Europe and Culture, and be informed on examples of “best practices”, studies and research and the opportunities of networking in Europe.
