Culture Action Europe calls for culture to be made central to EU recovery

25 Mar 2021

In a second open letter, published 19 March 2021, 110+ pan-European networks reiterate their call to Member States and the European Commission to secure a future for culture and cultural life in Europe.

Coordinated by Culture Action Europe, this follows the open letter from 30 October 2020, “Make culture central in the EU recovery”.

Signatories call for Member States to fully include culture in each and every National Recovery and Resilience Plan (NRRP) that EU countries should present to the European Commission before the 30 April deadline.

In line with the call from several Members of Parliament urging the governments of the EU Member States and the European Commission, it additionally calls for governments to dedicate at least at least 2% of the national recovery and resilience plans (RRF) for the Cultural and Creative Sectors and put culture as a priority sector when using funds from Next Generation EU.
