The EUROPEAN ALLIANCE OF ACADEMIES aims at initiating an alliance of art academies and cultural institutions across Europe – a transnational network that advocates for the freedom of the arts. Through new forms of cooperation, the participating institutions support each other and show solidarity towards one another whenever needed.

The institutions that committed to this idea come from almost every country of the European Union – a strong signal that the need for this solidarity-based alliance is high, especially in view of the Covid-19 pandemic and its political consequences. The partner institutions include renown art academies, national actors in cultural politics but also smaller cultural institutions.

With a joint manifesto, the members of the alliance formulate their responsibility and concrete possibilities for future cooperation. It will be made available to the press and political decision-makers.

The President of the Akademie der Künste, Prof. Jeanine Meerapfel, has pursued this idea for several years. On the occasion of the German EU Council Presidency and thanks to the support of the Federal Government Commissioner for Culture and the Media, Prof. Monika Grütters, the Akademie der Künste was able to start organizing this Alliance.
