Creative Europe

05 November - 06 November 2013, Marseille (DG EAC)


In January 2014, the European Commission will be launching its new programme - Creative Europe - dedicated to Europe’s creative and cultural sectors. With a total budget of €1,462 billion for the period of 2014 – 2020, Creative Europe represents a budget increase of 9 % compared to the previous programmes and thus a much-needed boost for the cultural and creative industries, which are a major source of jobs and growth in Europe.

Thousands of people working in cinema, TV, culture, music, performing arts, heritage and related areas will benefit from increased EU support under this new programme:

• 300 000 artists and cultural professionals and their work receive funding to reach new audiences beyond their home countries.
• More than 1 000 European films would receive distribution support, enabling them to be seen by audiences throughout Europe and beyond, on traditional and digital platforms.
• Thousands of cultural organisations and professionals from Europe would benefit from training to gain new skills and to strengthen their capacity to operate internationally.
• 2 500 European cinemas would receive support enabling them to ensure that at least 50% of the films they show are European.
• More than 5500 books and other literary works will receive support for translation, which will allow readers to enjoy them in their mother tongue.
• Millions of citizens would be reached through projects financed by the programme.

Ahead of the upcoming launch of Creative Europe, the European Journalism Centre in co-operation with the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Education and Culture, is tailoring a media seminar for a specialised group of 33 journalists from the EU28 and Iceland, Liechtenstein, Turkey, Norway and Switzerland covering cultural issues.

The event will feature panel discussions, keynote speeches and breakout sessions bringing together cultural policy makers, stakeholders, artists and cultural professionals, and address some of the hottest topics of Europe’s arts and culture sector at the moment. On top, the participating journalists will have the exclusive opportunity for one-on-one interviews with Androulla Vassiliou, EU Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism and Youth.

Additionally, the journalists will be able to attend this year’s Mediterranean Economic Week, which will focus on focus on the role of culture as a driver of economic development in the Mediterranean region.

The seminar will be held from 5-6 November 2013 in Marseille, this year’s European Capital of Culture. For more information, please contact Elise Rochez at [email protected]

This seminar is organised with financial and organisational support from the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Education and Culture.
