Creative Europe 2021-2027 (brochure)

In 2014, EU support to the cultural and creative sectors (CCS) was consolidated into a standalone funding programme – the Creative Europe programme. The programme has helped European artists, creators and content to find more opportunities and to reach new audiences beyond national borders. The programme has encouraged organisations to cooperate across disciplines and borders, as well as to develop new practices and innovations to reinforce the competitiveness and the resilience of the CSS. Between 2014 and 2020, the programme provided over 13 000 grants. It also co-financed training for over 16 000 professionals, 647 cultural cooperation projects between 3 760 organisations across Europe, the development and/or distribution of over 5 000 films, the operation of 1 144 cinemas and the translation of 3 500 books all over Europe. Building on this success, the programme for 2021-2027 has seen its budget increased by 50 % to invest in actions that reinforce cultural diversity and respond to the needs and challenges of the CCS. Its novelties will contribute to the recovery of these sectors, reinforcing their efforts to become more digital, greener, more resilient and more inclusive.
