European cultural networks are crucial instruments to achieving the objectives that the European Union (EU) has set for the Creative Europe programme for the 2021-2027 period.
What are the Creative Europe Networks?
Creative Europe Networks are organisations of different sizes representing thousands of members from individuals to national and regional organisations working in the cultural and creative sectors. The European Commission consults with these networks concerning the design and implementation of the EU’s culture policy.
With their help, the Creative Europe programme aims to strengthen the cultural and creative sectors, offering training and development opportunities. It provides a platform to exchange ideas and spread information about projects and best practices.
