The Coordination culturelle (Cultural Coordination Unit) of Luxembourg City – established at the Cercle Cité – was set up in 2007 to implement the cultural policy defined by the college of aldermen. It is tasked with ensuring the consistency and quality of Luxembourg City's cultural offerings, and encouraging interdisciplinary cultural projects. Currently comprising three people, the Coordination culturelle team serves as a liaison between the various cultural actors, and is the main point of contact for the city's cultural institutions. It also acts as an intermediary, and provides external cultural organisers with advice and useful information.
The Coordination culturelle team is also involved in international cultural coordination, and presides over the culture project group of the QuattroPole network.
