La Fédération nationale des collectivités territoriales pour la culture a été créée en 1960 par Michel Durafour, maire-adjoint à la culture de Saint-Étienne, avec pour ambition de promouvoir les initiatives des collectivités et de les inciter à s’affirmer dans le domaine de la culture. Principe : l’avenir de la vie culturelle passe par une politique de décentralisation. Intuition qui reste pleinement d’actualité. Association pluraliste, la FNCC représente près de 450 collectivités de toute nature. La FNCC organise chaque année son assemblée générale à Avignon, pendant le Festival, l’occasion d’organiser des débats et ainsi de prolonger la volonté de Jean Vilar de conjuguer manifestation artistique et réflexion politique.
