Released the new policy brief of the Social&Creative Community. Check it out!
Access to finance represents a major challenge for the cultural and creative sectors, especially in these times of crisis due to the pandemic. The New European Agenda for culture already made express mention of this fact of difficulty in accessing financing for these sectors and, in its economic dimension, the objectitive is to promote favourable ecosystems for cultural and creative industries, promoting access to financing, the capacity for innovation, the fair remuneration of authors and creators and intersectoral cooperation.
For the next long-term EU budget (2021-2027), the European Commission proposes to increase funding for Creative Europe, the program to support audio-visual works and the European cultural and creative sectors, to a figure of 1.85 billion euros.
There are already numerous examples in which the Administration is exploring new models to facilitate access to finance for the cultural and creative sectors, which are characterized by being made up of micro-enterprises and entrepreneurs, little familiar with business tools and with little time to be able to dedicate to management tasks.
In this policy brief, the 15th produced by the Social and Creative Community, you will find interesting success stories of funding instruments used all over the world to fund CCIs, policy alternatives and policy recommendations to help the ease the cultural and creative sector access to finance.
