Europe's rich cultural heritage and dynamic cultural and creative sectors are a part of European identity. These sectors fully contribute to the Union's economic development, generating jobs and growth, and are thus key for Europe's future.

The Creative Europe programme 2021-2027 constitutes a unique platform for coordinated and constructive support to them across the continent. Through the many activities and projects it will fund, the proposal will be a key enabler to reinforce European cultural and creative sectors, and to unlock their full potential in an economic, social and international perspective.

The European Economic and Social Committee's Consultative Commission on Industrial Change (CCMI) organizes a Public Hearing on 23.10.2018 on Europe Creative Programme.

The hearing is part of the preparation of an opinion on Europe Creative Programme following the referral from the Council.
