About the Creative Culture 2022 program

Creative Europe is a program of the European Union to support cultural and creative industries (performing arts, visual arts, literature, music, film, television, game industry, cultural heritage, etc.). The program annually offers more than twenty calls for financing cultural and creative projects.

The main objectives of this program are to protect, develop and promote European cultural and linguistic diversity and cultural heritage, as well as to increase the competitiveness and economic potential of the cultural and creative industries, especially in the audiovisual field.

Thanks to the supported projects and other activities, there should be a deepening of artistic and cultural cooperation at the European level, a strengthening of the economic and social dimension of the European cultural and creative industries; to help the innovation and sustainability of the audiovisual sector.

This project also advocates for an independent environment, including media literacy, which should have a positive impact on freedom of artistic expression, intercultural dialogue and social inclusion.

Creative Europe contributes to the achievement of key priorities of the European Commission, such as the Green Deal for Europe, inclusion and gender equality. All supported projects must take these principles into account in their activities.

Project introduction

The project is mainly devoted to the effective inclusion of minorities in the majority society in the cultural sector.

The main objectives of the project include the mapping of cultural and artistic subjects and the creation of an interactive map, the exchange of experience between cultural managers and musical artists in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Germany. Furthermore, the Association of Roma Cultural Managers and Artists in the EU will be established. Mapping Roma and non-Roma cultural critics in the partner countries will contribute to the interconnectedness of the market and greater opportunities for cooperation.

The main goal of the project is the professionalization of 60 Roma cultural managers and musical artists in the Czech Republic, Slovakia and Germany within the educational academy. Cultural managers and music artists will acquire and strengthen their skills through training in:

  • technical areas (sound system, lighting, audio, video, LED devices, stages),
  • digital areas (social networks, internet marketing, PR),
  • in the financial area (acquiring financial resources),
  • in cultural management (economics, law, branding, HR, accounting),
  • in innovations in the technical creation, processing, dissemination and preservation of musical works.
