16.12.2020

On 14 December, a political agreement was finally reached between the European Parliament and EU Member States on the new Creative Europe programme (2021‑2027), pending the final approval of the legal texts.

The European Blind Union (EBU) welcomes the addition in the new regulation of a general clause stating that the programme’s objectives shall be pursued in a way that encourages inclusion, equality, diversity and participation and, where appropriate, through specific incentives that ensure access to culture and creative sectors for people with disabilities – among other groups at risk of social exclusion and marginalisation – and encourage their active participation in those sectors.
