The IFCCD was founded in Sevilla on September 19, 2007. It replaced the International Liaison Committee of Coalitions for Cultural Diversity . ILC delegates had participated as observers in the international negotiating sessions which drafted the Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions, thus ensuring that the voice of cultural professionals was heard during this labour intensive process.
There are now 42 national coalitions for Cultural Diversity bringing together over 600 professional culture organizations representing creators, artists, independent producers, distributors, broadcasters, performers and editors in the publishing, motion picture, television, music, performing arts and visual arts fields.
