Raluca Pop

Independent cultural professional

Bucharest, Romania
Tel: +40 744 299 767


Raluca Pop is an independent cultural policy professional living and working in Bucharest, Romania. With a BA in communication studies and an MA in public policy from Central European University, Budapest, Raluca worked for 3 years as a consultant for the Romanian Cultural Contact Point and coordinated the national campaign for the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue (2008). In early 2010 she started an online project, banipentruarte (Romanian for “money for the arts”), which has quickly become an important source of information about available funding for Romanian cultural operators. The project evolved as a site for comments and discussions about public decision-making in culture and in 2011 Raluca coordinated the first research and info campaign about how European structural funds can support cultural projects in Romania. In January 2012 the association CubicMeter – resources for culture was established, which aims to provide cultural operators and policy-makers alike research-based tools and ideas for the development of a more democratic and effective cultural activity.

Raluca collaborates with the Romanian Academic Society a Romanian, as well as with innovative contemporary art producers from Romania as a project writer and consultant, and is an active member of the Coalition of the Independent Cultural Sector, an advocacy network aiming to develop the working and funding conditions of independent artists and cultural operators from Romania, while promoting the principles of good governance in culture.
