CED UK offices offer support and advice to organisations and businesses across all cultural, creative and audiovisual sectors looking for funding from Creative Europe. In addition, CED UK offer advice on other EU funding opportunities and promote international collaboration.
Creative Europe has a €1.46bn budget to support the audiovisual, cultural and creative sectors over the next seven years, a 9% increase on the combined previous budgets for the EC’s MEDIA and Culture programmes.
Partners include Arts Council England, Arts Council Northern Ireland, Creative Scotland, and the Welsh Government, while CED UK is also supported by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the European Commission.
The new CED UK team is led by Agnieszka Moody, who has more than a decade of experience running MEDIA Desk UK. Christoph Jankowski will be head of culture, England.
Moody commented: “This innovative wide ranging partnership will help ensure UK professionals across the creative and cultural sectors can benefit from Creative Europe funding, particularly as convergence creates new creative and business opportunities that can now be supported.”
The new Creative Europe programme is expected to reach over 300,000 cultural professionals, 100m European citizens and support the release of over 1,000 European films in 2,500 cinemas.
