Our thoughts go to the suffering people in Turkey and Syria after the recent earthquake - cultural relations in crisis are highly necessary to give hope and provide relief.

cS Explains


 Space for dialogue  Cultural relations 

The Composing trust podcast series goes deep into questioning the ways Europeans and the EU engage culturally with the world. The series brings cultural professionals, artists, policy makers and civil society around the table to discuss and share good practice on how best the EU can contribute to cultural relations in today’s world.


 Policy analysis  Cultural heritage 

This brief builds on the debate held at the joint EUISS-cS round table, held on 12 October 2022 in Brussels, and provides some updates on EU cultural heritage protection in crises, in light of the recent developments in Ukraine and other countries.



 Space for dialogue  Cultural relations 

This podcast episode introduces culture Solutions’ new podcast programme, framing the discussions of the podcast programme and presenting cS objectives.



 Space for dialogue  Cultural heritage 

This first podcast addresses the European Union’s role and actions in cultural heritage protection in times of crises, with our guests Aparna Tandon, Giovanni Fontana Antonelli, Johanna Leissner, and Giovanni De Siervo.



 Policy analysis  Cultural relations 

This blog looks at culture Solutions’ past contributions to the European Parliament’s December 2022 resolution on the implementation of the New Agenda for Culture (2023-2026) and the EU strategy for international cultural relations.


 Information sharing  Cultural relations 

This piece looks back at the example of the EU-funded programme Tfanen-Tunisie créative as a source of inspiration to refresh French external cultural action through joined-up EU initiatives.



We are looking for someone to contribute to implementing the fundraising and business development strategy and work plan, by delivering fundraising products and thus increasing funding opportunities for culture Solutions core activities. You can benefit from an Erasmus+ Traineeship.
