Culture is considered an important pillar of the EU as it contributes to the social cohesion and the European diversity. For that reason the "Treaty on the Functioning of the EU" defines culture as a cross-cutting area that builds bridges and synergies to other policy areas. That leads to a wide range of funding instruments open for cultural and creative projects provided by Creative Europe. Creative Europe is the EU's main program for the cultural, creative and audio-visual sector across Europe.
Creative Europe Desk KULTUR presents the brochure "EU funding for culture 2021-2027". In this brochure, a total of 13 funding instruments and their connecting factors for the cultural and creative sector are presented. Even if many of these programs are still in the final negotiations of the EU institutions, "EU funding for culture 2021-2017" already offers an orientation for cultural workers and institutions who want to familiarize themselves with the new EU programs beyond Creative Europe KULTUR.
This publication is a result of the "Infodesk Corona", a project by the German Creative Europe Desk KULTUR that is supported by the German Minister of State for Culture and Media, Monika Grütters. The project aims at providing insights into current and future EU support measures for the cultural and creative sector.
