Les Rencontres is an open forum for debate and action, grouping together elected members from all levels of local government throughout Europe in order to actively take part in the setting up of European cultural policies. Since 1994 the network has facilitated exchange on cultural and educational policies at a local, national and European level. Elected representatives need to meet and analyse the political responsibilities at stake, examine the reality of cultural policy in Europe and contribute to its establishment. Collaboration is constantly sought with experts, advisors, cultural networks, associations of elected representatives and artists in order to reposition and develop proposals.
