A Cultural Deal for Europe | the Annual Policy Conversation

The European Cultural Community proposes a transversal and overarching Cultural Deal for Europe to place culture at the heart of the European project.

Deadline: Register by November 15th, 2021
Date: 18 November 2021 from 15:00 to 18:00 CET

At last year’s event, the organisers jointly proposed a Cultural Deal for Europe to acknowledge the pivotal role of culture in shaping the future of our lives.
– Do you believe that there is no recovery or future of Europe without culture?
– Do you see culture as an integral part of the sustainable development?
– Do you want to live a culture-full life, where cultural workers are duly remunerated and included in democratic debates?
– Do you agree that the EU Member States should devote at least 2% of their National Resilience and Recovery Plans (NRRPs) to culture?

Culture Action Europe (CAE), the European Cultural Foundation (ECF), Europa Nostra, also in its capacity as coordinator of the European Heritage Alliance and Bozar – the Centre for Fine Arts, are pleased to invite you to join the Annual Policy Conversation A Cultural Deal for Europe, to be held in a hybrid format – at Bozar, Brussels and online – on 18 November 2021 from 15:00 to 18:00 CET.

Like in the two previous editions, the event will bring together Europe’s cultural scene and European policymakers to engage in a dialogue, to share ideas and develop together the way forward to put culture at the heart of the European project – because there is no Europe without culture.

This year’s event will focus on the contribution of culture and cultural heritage to Europe’s recovery, and to its green, more sustainable and inclusive future through the European Green Deal, the Conference on the Future of Europe and the New European Bauhaus, of which the three hosting organisations are official partners. The aim of this policy conversation is to inspire and engage the wider European community of artists, cultural workers, creative industries and heritage stakeholders in building a future that is more resilient and sustainable for Europe and its citizens.


The programme and speakers of the event will be made public soon through the communication channels of the organisers.
