ACCR evolves European, national and local cultural policies, economic developments and strategic positions in Europe and the rest of the world. The ACCR is engaged in a process of redefining the values which will revitalise its communications (incorporating advances in participation) in the coordination of services and resource-sharing amongst members. The ACCR intends to make the label ‘Centre culturel de rencontre’ an essential element in national and European policy-making. Its own international development is one of the priorities of the ACCR. Amongst its development plans for the future are an enlargement of the network and the creation of a dialogue between territories, especially rural ones.
