GEORGIA TO BE FIRST EAP COUNTRY TO JOIN CREATIVE EUROPE
New opportunities for Georgia artists, and a boost to the creative economy – all this will be possible in the framework of the EU programme Creative Europe, which Georgia will join on February 24 with the signature of an agreement by Georgian Culture Minister Mikheil Giorgadze and European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport Tibor Navracsics.
Georgia is the first Eastern Partnership country to join the programme, which has a total budget of €1.46 billion over 6 years (2014-2020). Creative Europe aims to support European culture, audio-visual, performing and visual arts, publishing, film, television, music, interdisciplinary arts, cultural heritage and the videogame industry.
Georgian cultural organizations can participate by submitting projects in the field of culture and multimedia, enabling them to work across Europe, present themselves to new audiences, and implement joint projects with European partners.
