With the goal of putting culture at the heart of decisions-making process and the public debate, both at the European and local level, the association is moving from a sector-oriented advocacy organisation to an issue-driven one.

At European and local level, CAE advocates for the fulfilment of cultural rights for the current and generation, the role that culture has on citizen’s well-being and as fundamental driver for sustainability.
