The ACP-EU Culture Programme is organising an international webinar “Towards a sustainable cultural and creative industry in African, Caribbean and Pacific countries” on 9 and 10 June.

This online event will provide an opportunity to put into perspective the programme’s actions in support of cultural and creative industries in ACP countries and to address the issues and challenges of a sector that has been strongly impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and is currently in the process of becoming resilient.

This meeting is the ideal framework to highlight the potential of the actions of the ACP-EU Culture Programme, to anchor them in the current issues that have an impact on the sustainability of cultural and creative industries in ACP countries.
