A new pilot project for the performing arts in Europe.

The European Commission has published the 2020 annual work programme for the implementation of the Creative Europe Programme. In addition to the regular actions of the programme and in line with the priorities of the New Agenda for Culture and as a preparation of the successor programme, the 2020 work programme introduces the pilot project “Circulation of European Performing Arts”.

This project aims to design and test a new support scheme for the cross-border circulation of performing arts performances, including dance productions. In 2020, the project will consist in a mapping of existing support schemes and in the design of a fund helping the performing arts sectors to bear the additional costs for the transnational staging of live performances.

The full text of the Creative Europe Work Programme 2020 can be found here (pdf, 157 pages).
