European Commission’s proposal for the EU future budget: ETC sides with the European Alliance for Culture

20 June 2018

The ETC and the European Alliance for Culture and the Arts welcome the European Commission’s proposal for the EU’s Multiannual Financial Framework for 2021-2027, which maintains Creative Europe as a self-standing programme, with an increased budget € 1.4 billion to €1.8 billion.

However, in the current state of the EU, looking at the political, economic and societal challenges, we strongly believe that the cultural sector needs a more significant boost, and therefore call on the European Parliament and the Council for a double increase of Creative Europe’s budget. All the more so, there are additional measures and schemes foreseen to be added to Creative Europe (mobility fund for artists, sectorial funding schemes).
