The European Union`s new programme, Creative Europe, came into force on 1st January 2014. It is the programme for the years 2014 – 2020 and it offers the financial support for audiovisual, cultural and creative sectors. It offers more support for culture, cinema, television, music, literature, visual arts, cultural heritage and other areas. Creative Europe has set aside funding for at least 250 000 artists and cultural professionals, 2000 cinemas, 800 films and 4500 literary translations. The programme will also launch a new financial guarantee facility enabling small cultural and creative businesses to access up to €750 million in bank loans.
The programme contains two sub-programmes: MEDIA and Culture – their main objectives are to promote Europe`s cultural diversity and heritage and strengthen the competitiveness of the European cultural and creative sectors.
The Minister of Culture and National Heritage entrusted Adam Mickewicz Institute with running Creative Europe programme`s office.
