Creative Europe is the EU’s main funding programme for the culture and creative sectors and offers funding to work with partner organisations from Europe and beyond. Our free workshop will be an interactive session for arts, culture, heritage, craft and design organisations to explore ideas for developing transnational working practices and to learn about accessing Creative Europe funding.

The session will begin with an overview of the Creative Europe Culture sub-programme and in particular the Co-operation projects fund by Audrey Keane of the Creative Europe Desk Ireland’s Culture office. 

Who should attend?

Creative Europe funding is open to organisations (that are legally registered entities). The funding supports projects that are developed with partner organisations from across Europe and beyond. Therefore, this workshop is suitable for culture professionals representing such organisations that have an interest in developing projects with European partners.
