The aims of the EU-MAN are to:

· promote a multicultural Europe

· combine ideas and put them into reality

· introduce migrant art and artists to the EU-natives

· promote interaction between migrants and native Europeans by arranging (mainly group) exhibitions for the members, meetings, workshops, seminars; by creating a supportative network within the network - a kind of information - and connection bank for the migrated artists, to help integration in the sense of 'becoming part of the whole without loosing the original character'.

· Fulfillment of aims : arranging exhibitions, meetings etc., editing and distributing the UC.
Universal Colours, EU-MAN's member bulletin/magazine, appeared to the opening of the first exhibition Art Harmonizes the World, held in May-June 1997 in Ateljé Kämpe, Turku. Ever since the beginning UC has appeared every three months. The magazine contains news about and/or concerning the members, a presentation of 'the Artist of the Issue', debate and articles simply about art. The UC is mainly a member bulletin, but we do our best to spread it everywhere there is place for art-talk. We work for a magazine with more colour = better economy.
After two years of existence, EU-MAN has members in ten European countries, Denmark, Holland, Austria, Sweden, the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Spain and Finland. The centre of the network has remained in Finland. Our aim is to also establish countrywise centres, in addition to those already functioning in Denmark and Holland, to keep up the decentralized structure of the network. In the near future, we hope that we will be able to afford to have our meetings in different countries
Furthermore, after its two years of existence EU-MAN has arranged three exhibitions.The first one mentioned above, the second a large scale touring exhibition, EU-MAN 98, starting in Turku Cultural Centre in August 1998, moving to Copenhagen where it is open December-98 - January-99. The exhibition will be shown in Jylland as well before it continues to Holland. In November, there was a small-scale exhibition, the Autumn Salon, in S-Galleria, Helsinki.
In the Autumn of 1999, EU-MAN is invited to have an exhibition in STOA, the cultural centre of the eastern Helsinki. In the year of 2000, in April-May, the nro 2 large scale exhibition, enrolled in the Helsinki 2000 Foundation, will be held in Kaapelitehdas Puristamo.
EU-MAN considers 'literature' - printed material - as an important pillar in its work. Thus, in addition to the Universal Colours mentioned above, every exhibition has been accompanied by a catalogue. The EU-MAN 98 catalogue is a 70-page book with a presentation of each participating artist, and articles touching the migrant artists' conditions
EU-MAN is going strong into the future!
