M3 – Resources for Culture is a Bucharest-based NGO set up in 2012 with the aim of providing a platform for meetings and debates, as well as expertise for the professionals in the field of culture. Our organisation aims to explore, support and help develop the cultural sector through specialised studies and interdisciplinary projects and by creating concrete favourable contexts where artists, cultural operators, researchers and authorities can meet and communicate. We believe in the important role of arts and culture in the development of each individual and of society as a whole and we advocate for professional cultural management and a democratic process of substantiating cultural policies and good governance at national level.
