EU to fully fund Creative Europe Desk in Ukraine

The European Commission has adopted an amendment to the Creative Europe Work Programme 2023 to fully cover the financing of the Creative Europe Desk in Ukraine. The extra €28,830 of support comes at a time of limited budget for the cultural sector in Ukraine.

Creative Europe Desks serve as advisory bodies in each country, playing a crucial role in promoting the opportunities offered by the programme to local organisations and individuals. Each country participating in Creative Europe receives support for their local desks through the Programme, but they cover part of the desks’ budget as well.

“This support is extremely important for Ukraine, as the country has significantly reduced its support for culture since the war started. The Creative Europe Desk in Ukraine helps bridge this gap and provides essential guidance and assistance to the Ukrainian cultural sector,” said a press release by the Creative Europe programme.
