Public consultations on culture in Europe
In 2006, Pearle* responded to a public consultation on culture in Europe. In its answer, Pearle* outlined the most important cultural challenges and objectives for Europe, with the emphasis on the financing of culture linked to the national policy for culture. In addition, attention should be given to cultural exchange, mobility and cooperation.
In 2010, the European Commission invited stakeholders on a future EU culture programme after 2014. Pearle responded to the consultation, underlining the following: A culture programme must continue to exist. Such programme should have broad objectives and give access to all cultural sectors on an equal basis. Activities should emerge from the sector itself rather than be proposed by the Commission. Funding should be as high as possible, considering the notion that it concerns projects with a real European dimension. The answers to the public consultations,respectively from 2006 and 2010, can be found under the links below.
