Member States Who's who

Who represents Member States in Brussels to make EU international cultural relations policy?

This kick-start initiative is to give cultural professionals easier access to EU policy-making for them to engage directly with EU institutions.

Our Who’s Who is constantly work in progress, a living tool.

Member States Permanent Representations

Each Member State has a Permanent Representation to the EU (check their individual websites and directories), with dedicated advisors on international cultural relations.

We hope that in the future we will be able to provide you with the full information on each Member State's Brussels-based advisor on international cultural relations.

Something special about her:

I am the president of the EUNIC Cluster until June (in practice until September) 2019.

The presidency changes every year. The new president will be Eike Eller, counsellor for cultural affairs Estonia.

The local cluster connects with local cultural actors, regional political bodies, civil organisations and the EU institutions, including the delegation to Belgium.The EUNIC Brussels cluster can possibly take part in projects dealing with countries outside the EU if a member proposes such a project and if at least three member institutes wish to engage. Our member institutes are of different nature; certain are independent from governments (for ex Goethe-Institut & Finnish Institute) but a majority belong to ministries of foreign or cultural affairs meaning that they have bilateral agreements for working in Brussels and Belgium.The members of EUNIC Brussels agree on that we should make effort to work for Europe, present different opinions but act as Europeans.

The EUNIC Brussels cluster does not work much with culture in external relations. What we can show of European culture outside Europe we can also show for Europeans; we can strengthen the feeling of europeanness, and also define it for ourselves. Within Europe there is still a lot of effort to be done in getting to know each other better; between East and West, between the Balkans and the Mediterranean etc.The Transpoesie project is an old but ongoing flagship project. It is about reading poetry in the original languages creating a networking possibilty for the poets; "yes we are different, we speak different languages; but the poetry is about the same questions.”
