Creative Europe large funding!!!

The European Commission has proposed a Europe-wide cultural-funding programme called Creative Europe, which aims to give an estimated €1.8 billion from 2014 to 2020, representing a 35% increase on EU expenditure on culture. Whilst approximately half of the proposed funding will be allocated to the development of the film industry, some €500m will be directly targeted at promoting visual and performing arts, funding an estimated 300,000 artists. The aim is to stimulate the economy by encouraging cultural enterprise. You can find the full story on the international edition of Artinfo.

Visiting Arts is the official UK Cultural Contact Point (CCP) for the European Commission's Culture Programme. Their website and the Alert e-newsletter will continue to provide the latest information on European funding. Email enquiries can be sent to
