Supporting Culture is Supporting Europe
Culture, as the foundation of European unity and key to future prosperity, needs a proper financial commitment to ensure the sustainability of the European project.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. We call 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
A shared European future is only possible with substantial and sustainable funding for culture both across policy fields and in the framework of a specific cultural programme.
