Creative Europe Platforms
The European Platforms’ scheme is funded by the Creative Europe programme. It offers action grants to organisations promoting European creators and artists, especially emerging talent, willing to engage at a European and transnational level. These organizations come together within a platform to showcase their common artistic vision and to help their members improve their audience development techniques.
The objectives are: promotion of the mobility of creators and artists; promotion of emerging talent from other European countries; stimulating a genuine Europe-wide programming of cultural and artistic activities; contribution to audience development; and providing visibility to Europe’s values and different cultures.
In total, 15 platforms are currently supported by the action. For more information, please read the brochure.
