Webinar on EU Cultural Policy and Advocacy

The European Music Council, of which Live DMA is a member, have hosted an online webinar on the Cultural Policy of the EU.

This one hour and a half long video gives information on:

  • The different European institutions and their role in deciding on the EU budget, priorities and programmes.
  • The ongoing negotiations for the EU budget, the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for 2021 – 2027.
  • The effect of Brexit on the EU budget and the composition of the European Parliament.
  • The advocacy possibilities for European and national music organisations for better support of the cultural sectors and the sectorial programme on music by the European Union.
