Culture Action Europe values Council’s position on Creative Europe

On the 10th and 11th of May, the EU Council of Culture Ministers met under the Danish Presidency in Brussels to adopt a position on the next EU Culture Programme Creative Europe.

Through the position adopted (a so called “partial general approach”), the EU Council of Culture Ministers not only expresses strong support for the proposal; it also clearly acknowledges the contribution that culture can play in helping Europe to recover from its crisis. The document results from both internal discussions within the European Council and with the European Commission which have led to several clarifications of the legal basis and which take into account many of the demands that, in the past months, Culture Action Europe (CAE) has given voice to within the framework of the campaign ‘we are more – act for culture in Europe’.
