The European Commission is launching a public consultation on the future of “cultural and creative industries”. The Green Paper “Unlocking the potential of cultural and creative industries” is open to individual citizens and organisations and in particular national, regional or local authorities, the European institutions and associations from the cultural and creative industries. The period for consultation Is from 27th April to 30th July 2010 and the objective is to gather views on various issues impacting the cultural and creative industries in Europe, from business environment to the need to open up a common European space for culture, from capacity building to skills development and promotion of European creators on the world stage. The responses to the consultation will inform the Commission and help it ensure that EU programmes and policies involving cultural and creative industries are “fit for purpose”.
