Our cultural policy believes that culture has the power to reach people personally, establishes a deeper understanding and brings its unique ability to enrich, embrace and elevate an affect response.
Our pillars ENRICH-EMBRACE-ELEVATE connect with the values of a contemporary society that enriches its peoples by sharing mutual understandings of our heritages, embraces pluri-diversity of peoples and elevates attention for our planet through cultural expression.
The vision of ENRICH- EMBRACE- ELEVATE reflects the objectives of the Dutch international cultural policy which accentuates a strong positioning of the national cultural sector through visibility, exchanges and long-term partnerships and the use of Dutch cultural expressions to support bilateral relationships.
