In 2018 Intercultura Consult is boosting connectivity among professionals, regions and domains in which culture and arts expertise are indispensable. Independent cultural policy designers, known in the field for their policy work across Europe and beyond, have launched a new network. The eight founders of the Cultural Policy Designers Network (CPDN) have joined forces to provide alternative and independent partnerships that draw on international expertise for advice, strategic planning and project implementation in the arts, culture and the creative economy.
The founders of CPDN are Toni Attard (Malta), Fanny Bouquerel (France), Cristina Farinha (Portugal), Tom Fleming (UK), Philippe Kern (Belgium), Petya Koleva (Bulgaria), Luka Piskoric (Slovenia) and Ragnar Siil (Estonia). As the first European network for professional cultural policy experts operating from within the non-governmental sector, CPDN will serve as a platform for its members to develop partnerships with national, regional, European and international institutions.

Intercultura Consult works for the business-city-arts scene trilateral dialogue on topmost cultural priorities of the capital of EU's 27th member state. The Sofia Creative Partnerships (2017) elaborated action points at the intersection of the interests of the business, the arts scene and the municipality of Sofia (PDF in BG). It furthered the work of the Shared Vision proposal (2016, PDF in BG) and was supported by Sofia Municipal Programme 'Europe'.
