EUROPEAN UNION CULTURE POLICY
The European Union seeks to preserve Europe's shared cultural heritage – in language, literature, theatre, cinema, dance, broadcasting, art, architecture and handicrafts, to name but a few – and help make it accessible to others. The EU supports the cultural and creative industries through: support programmes to help them make the most of the EU market and digital technologies funding help with research projects support for cooperation with partners inside and outside the EU. Many EU policies have a link to culture: education (including language-learning), scientific research, support for IT and communications technologies, social policy and regional development. For example, as part of its regional policy, the EU helps pay for music schools, concert halls and recording studios. The Creative Europe programme (2014-2020) has a total budget of € 454 million to spend on non- audiovisual cultural activities.
