EPC and 93 other CCS organisations demand increased investments for Europe’s Recovery Plan
On 17 June, EPC and 93 other Cultural, Media and Creative Sector organisations, published a joint letter addressed to European leaders in calling for increased investment in Europe’s next generation by investing in culture. The EPC joined in supporting the €2.8bn budget proposal from the European Parliament.
The Cultural and Creative Industries are one of the most hard hit sectors due to the COVID-19 crisis. Now, it is time to make sure the viability of a future CCS sector is secured.
During the past few weeks, cultural and creative activities have begun to resume operations in a new normal, however, operating at full capacity is still far from a reality.
Although news media has continued to bring the news, analysis, advice and entertainment to readers across the world, undoubtedly media has been particularly hard during the crisis. Support for a sustainable future to ensure diversity across the sector including at the all-important local level is therefore essential and EPC will continue discussions directly with the European Commission to support members’ actions at national level.
