The Work Plan for Culture 2023-2026: for a cultural sector that overcomes crises, rather than recovering from them for too long


At the end of 2022, the current plan, on which the EU has been working since 2019, expires, which is why discussions are already underway for the period 2023-2026. They coincide with the French and Czech presidencies of the EU Council and it is expected that their finalization would be the focus of the Czech programme, among other priorities, such as starting negotiations to increase the Creative Europe program budget, which currently continues to fall short of the sector’s needs, according to Czech Culture Minister Martin Baxa.

In June this year, The European Commission has published its assessment of what was achieved in the previous period of the Work Plan, as well as recommendations for improvement and new priorities for 2023-2026.
