Creative Europe: increased budget in 2022 to support cultural and creative sectors

January 17, 2022

On 13 January, the European Commission adopted the 2022 Annual Work Programme of the Creative Europe Programme. ​​Compared to 2021, the programme’s annual budget will increase by €100 million to €385.6 million. 

With its new agenda, Creative Europe will strengthen its support to the cultural and creative sectors, taking due account of the challenges resulting from the COVID-19 crisis and the growing global competition.

In February 2022, calls under the flagship action European cooperation projects will be launched and target all cultural and creative sectors to foster transnational cooperation, exchanges of practices, joint production and innovation.

In the second half of 2022, three new calls will be published to support the music sector through Music Moves Europe, the performing arts sector through the Perform Europe initiative, and cultural heritage through quality support to the European Heritage label action.
