The Creative Europe programme aims to enhance the economic, social and international dimensions of the European culture and creative sector, to promote its diversity and boost its competitiveness.
The 2019 Monitoring Report describes the programme’s full deployment and highlights its main achievements. The report reflects the vitality of the sectors, which enthusiastically come together at the European level, scale up and innovate, and achieve international critical acclaim. It shows that the value of the financial support provided by Creative Europe lies in the relationships and networks that make up our European cultural space, which can then fully bring European cultural diversity to all Europeans.
In its three sections, MEDIA, Culture and the Cross-sectorial strand, the programme has further developed specific measures in close dialogue with stakeholders in 2019. It also experimented with new forms of support in key areas:
– circulation of audiovisual content
– music diversity
– mobility of artists
– international cultural relations
– greening and
– gender equality
