Creative Europe Focus on Architecture Webinar Playback

If you missed our webinar Creative Europe: Focus on Architecture on 10th June, you can watch it back below. We look at the new Creative Europe Programme and the importance it places on architecture and the career of the architect. Have a look at the Creative Europe 2021 - 2027 Fact Sheet here for more information on the new programme. 

Our first guest was Hughes Becquart, Policy Officer, Directorate for Culture & Creativity, DG Education & Culture at the European Commission. Hughes discussed policy developments stemming from the EU Member States’ expert group focusing on high-quality architecture and 'Built Environment for Everyone.'

We also had a look at the New European Bauhaus initiative and how Irish organisations can get involved. You can download a short primer New European Bauhaus Explained from our website here. 

Our second guest was Fionnuala Sweeney, Head of Film & Architecture at Arts Council Ireland. She discussed the Arts Council’s role in architecture and its supports for the creative practice of architects. Find out more about their Architecture supports here
