The European Expert Network on Culture (the EENC) is a network of scholars working on the analysis of culture and cultural heritage policies. It was set up in 2020, after a Call for Tenders by European Commission's Directorate General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture. The EENC is coordinated by Interarts.
Culture Action Europe is a European network of membership organisations, cultural organisations and individuals dedicated to promote culture as a necessary condition for sustainable development both at a local and European scale.
In today’s interconnected world, culture's power to transform societies is clear. Its diverse manifestations – from our cherished historic monuments and museums to traditional practices and contemporary art forms – enrich our everyday lives in countless ways. Heritage constitutes a source of identity and cohesion for communities disrupted by bewildering change and economic instability. Creativity contributes to building open, inclusive and pluralistic societies. Both heritage and creativity lay the foundations for vibrant, innovative and prosperous knowledge societies.
Creative Europe is the EU programme for the cultural and creative sectors for the years 2014-2020. The general objectives of Creative Europe are: (a) to safeguard, develop and promote European cultural and linguistic diversity and to promote Europe's cultural heritage; (b) to strengthen the competitiveness of the European cultural and creative sectors, in particular of the audiovisual sector, with a view to promoting smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
Music Moves Europe (MME) is the overarching framework for the European Commission's initiatives and actions in support of the European music sector. Developed from a series of meetings with representatives of the music sector starting in 2015, Music Moves Europe was launched as a strategic initiative by the Commission. It has since developed further as a framework for discussions and today it stands for the EU support for music.
