With its current extension in Europe, the New Patrons are developing, de facto, a cultural policy that participates in its construction.

With contemporary forms, they reconnect with a history which for over a thousand years has encouraged architects and gardeners, painters and musicians, to cross Europe in order to respond to the wishes expressed by countless patrons spread over the territory. The revival of this movement with the respect of individual identities and the principal of subsidiarity has become easier since the projects reveal that the number of New Patrons no longer has other limits than the means each community decides to give them. Europe can rely on the density of a network which has no equivalent in the world in terms of cultural institutions and personalities with great expertise in art.

Other developments are ongoing in North America and Africa.
