Support culture in the EU long-term recovery budget

Updated: Jul 21, 2020

NEMO has co-signed a statement by Culture Action Europe calling for giving culture a central place in the proposed EU long-term recovery budget. Along with the statement, CAE also initiated an online campaign to gather signatures to support the call for an adequate budget for culture in the new Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF).


Culture Action Europe (CAE) writes, “Despite its historic relevance, the revised Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) proposal presented by the European Commission on 27 May is unambitious for culture. Member States now have the opportunity to show that a forward-looking strategy for the Europe of tomorrow does not leave culture and its ecosystem behind.” Support the call for investing in culture in the next MFF by signing the petition. There will be no real recovery for Europe if culture is left behind.  Ahead of the European Council meeting on 19 June, Culture Action Europe and the signatories call on the Member States to:

  • Double the budget of Creative Europe to 2,6 billion euros, as the core program for reinforcing European cultural cooperation. (#Double4Culture).

  • Make sure that the additional funds stemming from the Next Generation EU initiative, such as REACT-EU, reach cultural operators.
