The ORACLE network was founded in Athens in September 1992 by participants of the European Diploma in Cultural Project Management by the Association Marcel Hicter.

ORACLE is more than a traditional network – it is a dynamic community of individuals who are committed to fostering intercultural co-operation through the development of transnational projects within Europe, Africa and European partner countries.

Whilst most members are cultural managers who have undertaken the diploma, this is not compulsory – the network also welcomes freelance workers, artists, academics and anyone who wishes to play their part in creating genuine cultural exchanges and dialogue within a modern European and global context.
