Abstract

The Creative Europe Programme 2021-2027 takes European cooperation between the cultural and audiovisual fields to a new level by promoting stronger links between content and digital technologies. The programme equally recognises the intrinsic and artistic value of culture and its economic value including the broader contribution to growth, competitiveness, creativity and innovation. Projects can cover one or more cultural and creative sectors and can be interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral. At the same time, the programme shows a stronger alignment with the political agenda of the European Commission encouraging reflection and engagement for themes like diversity, inclusion and gender equality. New emphasis is placed on the environment and climate change through the New European Bauhaus initiative.

This event informs about the new approaches of Creative Europe, presents best practices and gives the opportunity for exchange. It is organised by Ars Electronica in cooperation with the Creative Europe Desks from Germany, Luxembourg and Austria.
