If you missed our webinar on Gender Equality in the Creative Sectors on 4th December, you can watch it back below or on our YouTube channel. Gender Equality is an key area of focus across cultural projects in the Creative Europe Programme and is a core priority in European Policy as part of ensuring an inclusive and diverse Europe. 

A significant number of projects and activities in this field will be funded between 2021 - 2027 across all EU funding Programmes. Creative Europe Desk Ireland wants to ensure that as many in the cultural sectors as possible can avail of these opportunities.
