Im Gespräch mit Guillaume Rousson, Direktor des französischen Kulturinstituts & Vorsitzender von EUNIC Austria
EUNIC Austria wurde 2007 ins Leben gerufen. Welche Visionen verfolgen Sie als Vorsitzender dieser Vereinigung? - Die Abkürzung steht für die Vereinigung der europäischen Kulturinstitute sowie Kulturabteilungen europäischer Botschaften, die Mietglied des EUNIC Netzwerks sind. Ich möchte vor allem die Arbeit meiner ungarischen und slowakischen Vorgänger fortsetzen und entwickeln. Mein Wunsch ist es, den Begriff „EUNIC week“ zu stärken. Diese kulturelle Woche wurde unter der ungarischen Präsidentschaft ins Leben gerufen. Sie ist heute der wichtigste Teil unserer Zusammenarbeit. Unser Ziel ist deshalb, die Sichtbarkeit des österreichischen EUNIC clusters sowie die Anzahl der Teilnehmer zu erhöhen.
On 30 June 2011, the institutes and cultural services of the European embassies in Senegal formed the first EUNIC group in francophone sub-Saharan Africa. Establishing the group was a logical consolidation of several years of collaborations between the cultural operators of the member countries, under the aegis of a European Union Delegation, which is dynamic and highly involved in the cultural sector. With a contribution of between 1 and 2 million euros (9th and 10th EDF), the EU Delegation has a significant role in structuring and professional development of public and non-state cultural stakeholders. However, the relationship with civil society and artists required the establishment of an intermediary, a "go-between" between macroeconomic structural policies and minor, everyday activities which put culture at the heart of development issues.
