Despite the historic urgency, the revised Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) proposal presented by the European Commission on 27 May has an unambitious for culture. The funding for Creative Europe, the only EU programme dedicated to culture is looking at a budgetary cut.
Culture Action Europe calls Member States to seize the opportunity to show that a forward-looking strategy for the Europe of tomorrow does not leave culture and its ecosystem behind. Culture is the binding force of the Union, a recovery strategy based on solidarity on fairness cannot treat this very fundamental value of the society as an auxillary tool.
