We call for a central place for culture in the EU long-term recovery budget. ETC is one of the initial co-signing organisations of this important Culture Action Europe campaign. Despite its historic relevance, the revised Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) proposal presented by the European Commission on 27 May is unambitious for culture. Member States now have the opportunity to show that a forward-looking strategy for the Europe of tomorrow does not leave culture and its ecosystem behind.
Let’s give the arts in Europe the means they need to overcome the crisis!
