European artist mobility helps development of European common roots and diversity
The European Parlement has voted in favor to double the budget of the 2021-2027 Creative Europe programme and to improve international circulation of artists such as through residency programmes. The Parliament believes that different actions wich are to be funded under the program wil benefit, amongst others, the books, films, music, festival, cultural heritage and architecture sectors.
The Parliament supports increased mobility for artists, and strongly encourages cross-border exchanges of creative players and artists.
Members of the European Parliament insist on the importance of engaging a young audience, especially to promote audiovisual works being used through legal channels. Media literacy is also one of the priorities of the programme, with Members insisting on its contribution to the development of critical thinking.
In addition, new media professionals should also benefit from the programme.
