The European Cultural Foundation Budapest as an NGO private foundation was founded by Zsuzsa Ferge sociologist and György Konrád writer in 1998.
As a former National Committee of the Amsterdam based European Cultural Foundation, our main priority is to develop the European cultural cooperation, to represent the European cultural heritage in a country at the beginning of its efforts to get integrated into Europe. We help the cooperation of cultural activists and mediators from different cultural fields and function as a mediator between local, regional and pan-European cultural initiatives.
Organisation's main activities:
We are organizing translation programs, multicultural cooperation projects in Hungary and in the Central European region, in close cooperation with non-governmental cultural institutions, cultural papers and individuals. One of our main task is to resonance the history and collective memory of the recent past of the region (the post socialist countries) and put the accent on local and regional identities, cultural heritage and historical legacies in urban spaces and collective memory in the region.
