June 18, 2020 - Europe’s cultural and creative sectors call for strong and systemic COVID-19 EU recovery measures

Despite being identified as one of 14 hardest hit strategic ecosystems in the EU, the cultural and creative sectors consider that the recovery package proposed by the European Commission on 27 May 2020 does not respond to the needs of the cultural and creative sectors, despite the encouraging messages by the Commission itself and the strong position taken by the European Parliament.
