Video conference of Ministers of Culture

The topics of the second videoconference of ministers of culture will be further steps that need to be taken in the transition period of the COVID-19 crisis, following the first videoconference held in April. The gradual opening of cultural institutions and organising of cultural events represents a challenge in the sense of artistic activity and re-attracting the audience.

Member States will therefore exchange experiences on future steps and on how these gained experiences can shape future policies and measures, having in mind the long-term consequences of the crisis. EU ministers and commissioners for culture and audiovisual policy will continue the discussion on the need to coordinate undertaken measures and opening of the sector at the EU level, taking into consideration the significance of a harmonized EU approach in relation to the global aspect of creative expression and activity.

Finally, the upcoming German Presidency will present its priorities and programme for the second semester of 2020.
