The main policy objectives of the we are more campaign concern two instruments of the future EU budget framework 2014-2020: the Culture programme, and the structural and cohesion funds for regional development.
The Culture Programme is the only EU instrument that is dedicated fully to a direct support to culture.
On September 15th, the Directorate-General for Education and Culture launched its public consultation on the Culture Programme to collect input for the preparation of its 2014-2020 successor. The deadline for contributions is the 15th of December 2010.
In the upcoming months, the we are more campaign will submit a contribution to the consultation to detail one of our general demands:
A bold and daring Culture Programme for the period 2014-2020 that will fund cutting edge artistic and cultural experimentation around our common European concerns and aspirations. A programme that will support innovative cultural co- operations, and experiment with new artistic, intercultural, social and economic models.
