Culture is the basic form of human expression and a foundation of free speech. Art and culture allow us to express ourselves freely in a global world. Currently, national governments and EU policymakers are making Post-2020 EU Budget decisions that will influence the next phase of support to culture.

Trans Europe Halles, Culture Action Europe and our members are now mobilising at the member states level, developing joint advocacy actions to call for sufficient and increased funding for the arts and culture in Europe.

With the support of City of Lund, we called an emergency meeting with the main Swedish cultural stakeholders yesterday and co-drafted a letter addressed to the Swedish ministries of Culture and Finances, as well as to Swedish MPs and MEPs calling for support of increase of Creative Europe budget in the upcoming EU Council meetings and in the framework of MFF negotiations.
