Culture at the Heart of Europe

Supporting Culture is Supporting Europe - National governments and EU policymakers are currently taking decisions on the post 2020 EU budget that will influence the next phase of support to culture. Culture Action Europe calls on the European Institutions and Member States to recognise the EU added value of cultural investment and translate it to sufficient support in the next EU budget. - Ensure that 1% of the budget of each EU policy field is allocated to culture - Double the budget for culture Sign the Manifesto
