Ethical and aesthetic values must be the essence of a new European Society.
Culture is the core of society. Creativity is the source of human existence.
- The voices of independent artists must be heard in order to balance the growing influence of technocracy.The ECP will amplify these voices.
- Europe needs intensified dialogue between artists and other creative individuals from the whole continent. The ECP will be the forum for this continuing dialogue, remaining independent of political and administrative structures.
- Creative interaction between artistic and civic systems is needed.
The ECP will establish this new relationship.
- The process of globalisation needs a human dimension.
The ECP sees culture as a means to achieve this.
The European Cultural Parliament consists of about 160 individual members, all from different cultural sectors and coming from 43 countries. It is an independent organisation, having no political affiliation, but is open to dialogue with all relevant institutions.
