Culture Action Europe News July/August 2012

Following the EU Ministers of Culture’s opinion about the next EU Culture Programme Creative Europe that was published in May, the negotiations now continue in the European Parliament, where the report of the Culture Committee is expected on 8 October.

Contemporarily, all EU Member States are deciding how they want to use the next generation of EU funds for regional development in their countries, while the Heads of States continue to negotiate the next long-term EU budget at the European Summits – according to the official press release of the Council a final agreement is now expected on 13 December. To get an overview of all the important dates during autumn 2012, make sure to download the latest version of the campaign’s political calendar that we update on regular basis.

On July 1st, Cyprus took over the Presidency of the Council of the European Union from Denmark. During the Danish Presidency, Culture Action Europe both had the opportunity to convey the campaign message and all signatures in connection with the EU Ministers of Culture meeting and to participate in a debate with several Ministers of Culture and MEPs about the role of culture in times of crisis. We now look forward to collaborate with the Cypriot Presidency, whose programme in the field of culture will include work on the public value of culture and cultural governance as well as the hosting of the 4th International Euro-Mediterranean Conference (EuroMed 2012), which will focus on ‘Cultural Heritage & Digital Libraries’.
