Cultural diversity

Publications and Studies

Online version of the spring edition of the Culture in Motion newsletter

The European Commission is now featuring a brand new newsletter, Culture in Motion, on its website. This publication reports on events and activities in connection with the Culture Programme and calls for projects under way.

The EU’s Culture Programme (2007–2013) has a budget of €400 million for projects and initiatives to celebrate Europe’s cultural diversity and enhance our shared cultural heritage through the development of cross-border cooperation between cultural operators and institutions. It encourages interdisciplinary cooperation between European organizations such as theaters, museums, professional associations, research centers, universities, cultural institutes, and public authorities with a view to extending their cultural and artistic reach across borders.

The Culture Programme aims to achieve three main objectives: to promote cross-border mobility of those working in the cultural sector; to encourage the transnational circulation of cultural and artistic output; and to foster intercultural dialogue.

We invite you to read this newsletter on the European Commission website.
