Over 80 European cultural and creative industry organisations appeal to EU Commission over Covid-19 crisis

Europe’s cultural and creative sectors have called (6 May 2020) for ambitious EU budgetary measures to get through the COVID-19 crisis.

Nearly 100 organisations have written to the EU Commission reminding them that the Cultural and Creative Sectors, which stand at €509bn in value added to GDP and over 12 million full-time jobs (7.5 % of the EU’s work force), must be considered as priority sectors for more funding, be it from Creative EUROPE, HORIZON 2020 and other EU funding.
