The 23rd Meeting of the IFACCA Europe Regional Chapter recently took place in Tartu, Estonia, hosted by the Estonian Ministry of Culture. Held from April 24th to 26th, 2024, the gathering brought together National members, including Kultur | lx – Arts Council Luxembourg, and affiliates at this year’s European Capital of Culture. Deliberations centered on the theme “Our role as Public Agencies for Culture: our context in Europe navigating change”.

In the midst of continuous and rapid change, it was noted that some members were unable to attend due to addressing critical issues and ensuring the survival of their institutions. The Chapter members shared their concerns, recognizing the diverse contexts present even within Europe. Additionally, the theme of Arts of Survival of Tartu as European Capital of Culture 2024 served as a poignant reminder of the indispensable role of culture.

Looking ahead, Luxembourg will host the IFACCA European Chapter Meeting in 2026.
