Anna Ochmann, president of ARTeria Foundation, took part in the online presentation of Culture Action Europe’s latest publication “Culture in the EU’s National Recovery and Resilience Plans”. Developed together with CAE members, this paper offers an overview of the place of culture in the National Recovery and Resilience Plans (NRRPs) of the Member States of the European Union.
Presentation was organised on Thursday, 9 December 2021.
In 2020, as an immediate response to the pandemic crisis the EU institutions adopted a one-of-a-kind stimulus package, called Next Generation EU (NGEU), to boost the recovery of the continent. The core component of this envelope, called Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) is channelled to EU Member States between 2021 and 2026 to better cope with the pandemic fallout and make European economies and societies more sustainable, resilient and better equipped for the green and digital transitions.
“Culture in the EU’s National Recovery and Resilience Plans” is a brief overview to aim at analysing what types of investments and reforms (if any) are contained in the NRRPs directly supporting Europe’s cultural ecosystem, which has been among the most affected by the long crisis and the subsequent containment measures.
This document is part of the #CulturalDealEU campaign calling on the EU Member States to devote at least 2%of their National Resilience and Recovery Plans (NRRPs) to culture. Foundation ARTeria has been a member of Culture Action Europe since 2010 and we actively supports this campaign.
