How is culture included in the 2021-2027 cycle? CAE will summarise cultural developments and policy actions in the cultural fields (Creative EuropeAgenda for Culture and European Year of Cultural Heritage) and in the other domains of EU action (Horizon Europe, Digital Europe, etc.). We want to listen to your concerns and aspirations, as well as design common strategies to act to ensure an increased budget in the next Multiannual Financial Framework.  
               European Elections 2019 – CAE policy session  – with Kornelia Kiss
As the political network for culture and the arts, CAE has produced an Appeal for the 2019 Elections together with its members with a view to input in the European parties manifestos. CAE will summarise planned actions, but what can we do as a network to raise the profile of culture during the elections? How can we involve citizens more? Do you have actions planned? Let’s share them and join forces!
               EU-UK: Culture bridges – informal group – with Clymene Christoforou
What is the status of culture in the Brexit negotiations? CAE will inform about its policy initiatives in the last period. We will jointly reflect on what can the EU and UK cultural sector do together to ensure the ‘best’ possible Brexit result.
               Culture & Education – informal group – with Lars Ebert
CAE has worked on building synergies between education and culture in 2019 though events, podcasts, working groups and policy actions. How can we move forward? Join the discussion to explore how cultural stakeholders can develop a qualifications framework towards lifelong learning that covers culture and education (learning from cradle to grave towards cultural citizenship / cultural literacy) with a view to developing a white paper for 2025.
