Creative Europe Desk Ukraine

Creative Europe is the European Union’s financial support programme for the creative, cultural and audiovisual sectors in Europe. The programme was launched on 1st January 2014 and it builds on the experience and success of the previous Culture, MEDIA and MEDIA Mundus programmes (2007-2013), supporting European projects with the potential to travel and find audiences beyond their national borders.
Creative Europe consists of three components:


Sub-programme supporting the development and distribution of audiovisual works.


Sub-programme promoting the creative and cultural sectors.

 Cross-sectoral strand

Includes funding for the Creative Europe Desks and the financial guarantee facility as well as a variety of initiatives, and prizes, which aim to highlight excellence and raise awareness of Europe’s creativity and heritage.

Creative Europe Desk Ukraine helps Ukrainian cultural, creative and audiovisual sectors to access funding from Creative Europe Programme. We also promote Creative Europe Programme and the co-funded projects in Ukraine.

The role of Creative Europe Desks is to promote the programme in all participating countries and to assist applicants in their own country. Creative Europe Desks can be found in each participating country. A full list of Creative Europe Desks can be found on the Education, Audiovisual and Culture Executive Agency (EACEA) website.
