Creative Europe is the European Commission’s framework programme for support to the culture and media sectors.
Following on from the previous Culture Programme and MEDIA programmes, Creative Europe, with a budget of €1.46 billion (9% higher than its predecessors), will support:
– Culture sector initiatives, such as those promoting cross-border cooperation, platforms, networking, and literary translation;
– Audiovisual sector initiatives, such as those promoting the development, distribution, or access to audiovisual works;
– A cross-sectoral strand, including a Guarantee Facility and transnational policy cooperation.
The programme consists of two sub-programmes; the Culture sub-programme to promote the culture sector, and the MEDIA sub-programme to support the audiovisual sector. Results are published on the Creative Europe Dissemination Platform.
The Creative Europe programme has two sub-programmes, Culture and MEDIA, in addition to a cross-sectoral strand. Under the Culture sub-programme, opportunities exist for:
– Cooperation between cultural and creative organisations from different countries;
– Initiatives to translate and promote literary works across the European Union;
– Networks helping the cultural and creative sector to operate competitively and transnationally;
– Establishing platforms to promote emerging artists and stimulating European programming for cultural and artistic works.
The Culture sub-programme helps cultural and creative organisations to operate transnationally and promotes the cross-border circulation of works of culture and the mobility of cultural players.
It provides financial support to projects with a European dimension aiming to share cultural content across borders.
Funding opportunities cover a diverse range of schemes: Cooperation projects, Literary Translation, Networks or Platforms. The supported activities aim to enable cultural and creative players to work internationally.
