Europe supports culture – but how?

05.01.2014 |

The seminars “Europa fördert Kultur – aber wie?” (Europe supports culture – but how?) take place in January and February in three venues in Germany and aim to facilitate the new Creative Europe programme with all of its changes and specialties.

“Europa fördert Kultur – aber wie?” is a workshop concerning the cultural funding of the EU. It is initiated with a spotlight on the sub-programme CULTURE and its focus on European cooperation projects. Besides the presentation of the differences between the old and the new programme’s funding criteria, advice from the national contact point and information about alternative funding sources is given.

What has been learned by the participants is then put into practice in an interactive training workshop. It results in beginning ideas of criteria-fitting projects or at least in a deeper understanding of the successful realization of these.
