How to benefit from the NextGenerationEU Recovery Plan if you work in culture
KEA European Affairs, partner of the project MESOC, recently published an article intending to give practical information on the EU’s NextGenerationEU Recovery Plan and ways for the Cultural and Creative Sectors (CCS) to access such EU funds.
The CCS are among the sectors most affected by the ongoing pandemic. While countless creative initiatives bring us solace in these challenging times, a large section of the CSS are still gravely afflicted. Public authorities at European level are considering ways to remedy the situation. The European Commission is playing its part by implementing a variety of measures, most notably the ambitious NextGenerationEU. It is supported by the European Parliament which on 17 September voted overwhelmingly in favour of a Motion urging Member States to include the CCS in the EU-funded national Recovery Plan.
The article details the multiple Next Generation EU instruments that have been implemented and how organisations from the cultural and creative sectors can access them.
