A Welcome from the Board

In the relations between people, countries, and continents, culture has always played a leading role.

The purpose of the European-American Cultural Foundation (E-ACF) is to strengthen cultural bonds and collaboration between the European Union and its Member States with the United States, reflective of their enduring historical relationship.

The programs you will see described in these pages — presented in conjunction with the Delegation of the European Union to the United States and its Member States — not only reinforce this relationship, they bring it vividly to life, through performing arts festivals, special events, lectures, and other forms of cultural cooperation and exchange.

Continent to continent. Country to country. Person to person. As the founding board members of the E-ACF, we welcome you to join us in our mission to connect communities and cultures.
