EIBF lends its voice to European cultural and creative sectors calling for help

  • 03/11/2020

EIBF co-signs three letters to the European institutions asking for sustainable recovery plan for culture 

 

EIBF has co-signed three different letters to the European Commission, the European Parliament and to the European Council, together with 110 European organisations from the cultural and creative sector in regards to the upcoming national Recovery and Resilience plans.

In our letter to the European Parliament, we ask MEPs to support a number of amendments tabled on the draft Report on a Recovery and Resilience Facility, which call for at least 2% of the Recovery and Resilience Facility to be earmarked for the cultural and creative sector.

On a similar note, we also call on EU leaders to place culture at the core of their national Recovery and Resilience plans, which aim at a sustainable, inclusive and future-looking revival of our social and economic life.

Finally, we are also asking the European Commission to encourage Member States to allocate at the very least 2% of their budget for the recovery and resilience plans to the cultural sector, as well as to assess and monitor the adequacy of said plans. 

You can find all three joint letters in this page.
