Today the culture and education committee in the European Parliament backed the report drafted by S&D MEP Silvia Costa to strengthen the Creative Europe programme for the period 2021 to 2027.
 
Creative Europe is the only EU direct programme for the cultural, creative and audiovisual sectors and the S&Ds have pushed for increased budget and some novelties, such as dedicated actions for mobility of artists, heritage and architecture, music sector, pluralistic media.
The report also calls on the European Commission to better define priorities and actions in the different strands of the programme.
 
Silvia Costa MEP, author of the parliamentary report and S&D spokesperson on culture and education, said:
"Creative Europe connects today a large European community of cinema and audio-visual industries, as well as performing arts, museums and art galleries, festivals, cultural heritage, architecture, books and music, which for the first time is targeted by a specific line of action of the programme. This programme is underfinanced and we are asking for a doubling of the previous budget.
“We believe that European talents - especially the younger generations - should be able to circulate and to circulate their works, have the chance to work on co-productions, and be further supported in the face of the current lack of funds that causes a major loss of opportunities."
