NEMO co-signs letter calling for strong and systemic support measures to recover from the crisis

Ahead of the European Council meeting on 19 June, NEMO and 93 other organisations from across the cultural and creative sector, have co-signed a letter calling for strong and systemic support measures at EU and national level to recover from the crisis.

Cultural actors are gradually resuming their activities, but they will not be operating at full capacity for the foreseeable future and are therefore facing challenging economic decisions. From individual creators and creative workers all the way to big production and media companies, the whole value chain is impacted.

The signatories call on Member States and the European Parliament:

  • To push for a substantial increase of the Creative Europe budget. We fully support the European Parliament’s proposal for a budget of €2.8bn.
  • To guarantee that the entire sector can benefit appropriately from the recovery plan’s various instruments. 

Let’s invest in culture to show the EU’s #NextGeneration that we really care about their future.
