The Rebuilding Europe study starkly laid out COVID-19’s destruction of European creative industries, but it also delivered a message of hope:
If properly supported, Europe’s rich and diverse creative economy could lead an economic and social recovery, spurring the kind of change that will propel Europe into a promising future.
European decision-makers and Member States responded positively to the study, pledging budgetary increases and supporting efforts to reopen cultural venues. And the EU launched its historic financial plan of over €2 trillion for the recovery of the European economy.
Now it's time to find out from decision-makers themselves what these actions will mean for Europe's cultural scene and what we can expect in 2022.
Rebuilding Europe with culture - Where do we stand? will launch on 8 December 2021.
