LATEST NEWS - CREATIVE EUROPE: COMMISSION UNVEILS PLAN TO BOOST CULTURAL AND CREATIVE SECTORS

Thousands of people working in cinema, TV, culture, music, performing arts, heritage and related areas would benefit from increased EU support under the new Creative Europe programme unveiled by the European Commission today. Europa Nostra will examine carefully the proposals made by the European Commission and will shortly communicate its position to the EU Institutions concerned. With a proposed budget of €1.8 billion for the period 2014-2020, it would be a much-needed boost for the cultural and creative industries, which are a major source of jobs and growth in Europe. The new programme would allocate more than €900 million in support of the cinema and audiovisual sector (area covered by current MEDIA programme) and almost € 500 million for culture (presently covered by the Culture programme).
