Creative Europe increases budget to support cultural and creative sectors

On 13 January, the European Commission adopted the 2022 Annual Work Programme for the Creative Europe programme. With an annual budget of €385.6 million, nearly €100 million more than in 2021, Creative Europe will offer greater support to the cultural and creative sectors, taking account of the challenges of the COVID-19 crisis and increasing global competition. Within the cross-sectoral strand, Creative Europe will continue supporting journalism partnership projects and provide more stable support for media freedom projects and media literacy.
