Creative Europe

Creative Europe invests in actions that reinforce cultural diversity and respond to the needs and challenges of the cultural and creative sectors. The main objectives of the programme are to safeguard, develop and promote European cultural and linguistic diversity and heritage, increase the competitiveness and economic potential of the cultural and creative sectors, in particular the audiovisual sector. The novelties of the programme will contribute to the recovery of these sectors, reinforcing their efforts to become more inclusive, more digital and environmentally more sustainable. 

The Creative Europe programme is divided in 3 strands: 

- CULTURE strand – initiatives promoting and enhancing artistic and cultural cooperation at European level 

- MEDIA strand – actions encouraging the competitiveness, innovation and sustainability of the European audiovisual sector 

- CROSS-SECTORAL strand – initiatives promoting innovative actions and collaboration across the audiovisual and cultural sectors 

The Creative Europe programme is open to cultural and creative organisations from EU Member States, as well as non-EU countries. Subject to certain conditions, countries of the European Economic Area, candidate/potential candidate countries and European Neighbourhood Policy countries can also participate in the programme.
