Global Cultural Relations Programme

In 2022, the GCRP brought together 38 cultural innovators and changemakers from 38 countries to collaborate, share skills and ideas, and develop their international networks in Istanbul.

For the past two decades, regional, European and global institutional frameworks and instruments  have emerged  in the field of International Cultural Relations. The outcome? A renewed and expanded agenda, which began to incorporate the notion of transversality of culture and as well as cultural diversity and interculturality, plurinationality, intercultural dialogue, gender rights, social justice, and community practices.
