Art and culture in Europe initiates and promotes the strategic dialogue between actors and experts of art, culture and arts education in Germany, France and Poland. Model artistic-cultural projects are often the focus of the diverse event and project formats such as conferences, colloquia, award ceremonies and artist residencies.
