Programme - Conference "Creative Europe: an opportunity for live music" - Rome, 15 March 2019

On 30 May 2018, the European Commission presented the proposal for the regulation on the establishment of the new Creative Europe programme for the 2021-2027 period.

The objective is promoting European cooperation on cultural diversity and strengthening competitiveness of the cultural and creative sectors.

The European Parliament has expressed a strong position on the Commission’s proposal in clear favour of improving the programme and investing in live music in Italy and Europe. In view of this vote and of the forthcoming plenary confirmation, it is important to share views between stakeholders, taking stock of objectives achieved and expectations of the live performing sector.

Investments in this sector represent a great opportunity for operators, artists and young talents to promote cultural diversity in Europe.
