*euroart – the European Federation of Artists’ Colonies – was launched in 1994. It was founded in Brussels under the auspices of the European Parliament and the European Commission. Euroart currently consists of about 70 member organisations, associated organisations and personal members in 13 European countries: Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Netherlands, Norway, Poland and Russia. The members organise exhibitions together, exchange views, knowledge and artists. And at the annual meetings, they not only inform each other about developments in their respective colonies, they work together for greater cultural understanding and cooperation in a European context.
