Open letter to EU leaders from Europe’s cultural and creative sectors
ELIA is one of 90 organisations from across Europe's cultural and creative sectors to send an open letter to EU leaders calling for support of an ambitious Creative Europe 2021–2027 budget increase.
"Today, Creative Europe represents a mere 0,15% of the overall EU Budget. This is by no means proportionate to our sectors’ contribution to the EU economy, which stands at €509bn in value added to GDP and over 12 million full-time jobs (7.5 % of the EU’s work force).
Investing in our culture is investing in our future. Let’s show a high level of ambition and shape a brighter future for Europe."
