2012 is a key decision-making year during which the EU budget 2014-2020 will be voted upon by Members of the European Parliament and Ministers from the Member States. EU support to culture over the next seven years is at stake and the negotiations over the first four months of the year will be crucial. The campaign 'we are more - act for culture in Europe', in which also the International Culture Centre is involved, calls for vital support for culture in the next EU budget and wants to collect 100.000 signatures and present them to the Culture Ministers of all EU Member States when they gather in Brussels for the EU Council of Culture Ministers in May 2012.
Do you think arts and culture play a crucial role in social and economic life?
In your opinion, should the EU allocate more money for culture in its broad sense?
If YES, sign the campaign manifesto NOW!
Till May 2012 we intend to collect 8 709 signatures in Poland – help us!
