It has more than 100 member institutions and professionals in over 40 countries active in education, training and research within the broad field of cultural management and policy. Our members have an impact on the education of thousands of cultural managers worldwide. ENCATC represents, advocates, and promotes cultural management and cultural policy education, professionalizes the cultural sector to make it sustainable, and creates a platform for discussion and exchange at European and international level. ENCATC represents all disciplines in the arts and culture, is an NGO holding the status of official partner of UNESCO and of observer to the Steering Committee for Culture of the Council of Europe. It’s a lively and expanding European platform encouraging serious exchange of knowledge, methodologies, experiences, comparative research and regular assessment of the sector’s training needs in the broad field of cultural management from a European point of view through a wide range of working groups, projects, activities and events. We voice the views of our members through our dialogue with international and European institutions and organisations on legislation, policies and programmes impacting on education and training in cultural management and cultural policy.
