Who we are

Association and Service Provider

On the 1st of April 2018, the Compendium of Cultural Policies & Trends transitioned into a multi-stakeholder Association which is registered at the chamber of commerce in Amsterdam. Until the 31.12.2020 the Boekman Foundation, the institute for arts, culture and related policy in the Netherlands was the Compendium’s Coordinator. Since the 1st of January 2021 the Kulturpolitische Gesellschaft e.V. (Bonn, Germany) is the new Coordinator of the  Compendium of Cultural Policies & Trends and therefore responsible for the daily management of the project.

Statutes and vademecum

The unique character of the Compendium system, that comprises both NGO’s and government bodies as members, ensures the independence of the community of expert authors in its statutes.

The Vademecum of the Association, that consists of the Membership Charter, the Rules of Procedure for the annual General Assembly of the Association, the Rules of Procedures of Assembly of Compendium Experts (ACE) and the Rules of Procedures for the Association’s board, can be found here.

The Compendium of Cultural Policies and Trends welcomes new actors (governments, research bodies and universities, NGOs, foundations, etc.) to join the Association, either as Stakeholders or Standing Members.

Please find more information on the membership possibilities here.
