International Cultural Policy
A proactive and innovative international cultural policy is a quality benchmark of Austria’s foreign policy. Its tasks and objectives are precisely formulated in the International Cultural Policy Concept 2011, which is in force since September 2011. In a nutshell, we aim at creating international moments of attention for the creative side of Austria using culture as a medium.
