New european 2014-2020 programme for culture

Creative Europe is the new EU programme dedicated to the cultural and creative sectors, proposed by the European Commission on 23 November 2011 that will run from 2014 to 2020. It would support tens of thousands of artists, cultural professionals and cultural organisations in the performing arts, fine arts, publishing, film, TV, music, interdisciplinary arts, heritage, and the video games industry, allowing them to operate across Europe, to reach new audiences and to develop the skills that are needed in the digital age. By helping European cultural works to reach new audiences in other countries, the new programme will also contribute to safeguarding and promoting Europe's cultural and linguistic diversity.
What will the programme achieve?
  • 300 000 artists and cultural professionals and their work receive funding to reach new audiences beyond their home countries.
  • More than 1 000 European films would receive distribution support, enabling them to be seen by audiences throughout Europe and beyond, on traditional and digital platforms.
  • Thousands of cultural organisations and professionals from Europe would benefit from training to gain new skills and to strengthen their capacity to operate internationally.
  • 2 500 European cinemas would receive support enabling them to ensure that at least 50% of the films they show are European.
  • More than 5 500 books and other literary works will receive support for translation, which will allow readers to enjoy them in their mother tongue.
  • Millions of citizens would be reached
