Welcome to Creative Europe Desk UK

Creative Europe is the European Commission's programme to support the cultural, creative and audiovisual sectors. From 2014-2020, €1.46 billion is available to support European projects with the potential to travel, to reach new audiences and to encourage skill sharing and development.

Launched in January 2014, Creative Europe brings together a Culture sub-programme, which provides funding for the cultural and creative sectors, and a MEDIA sub-programme, which invests in film, television, new media and games.

Creative Europe Desk UK promotes awareness and understanding of Creative Europe, provides free advice and support to applicants, and encourages organisations from the UK to become involved in successful applications. Creative Europe Desk UK’s team of specialists are based across the UK, in London, Manchester, Glasgow, Cardiff and Belfast.

The MEDIA sub-programme supports the European film and audiovisual industries in the development, distribution and promotion of their work, while also encouraging skills development and nurturing new technologies. It enables works to find markets beyond national and European borders, and helps professionals build productive international networks.

The Culture sub-programme offers funding for cooperation projects, literary translations, networks and platforms in the performing and visual arts, literature, heritage and other areas. It helps cultural and creative organisations to operate transnationally, promoting the cross-border circulation of their works and mobility of cultural players.
