Our colleague from HETFA’s Creative Industries Lab, Katalin Gordos, held a workshop on available funding opportunities for the Cultural and Creatives Sectors in the 2021-2027 programme period. The workshop has been organised in the framework of the Nextfeszt event by Trafó House of Contemporary Arts in collaboration with SÍN Arts Centre and Fresh Fabrik.

The workshop targeted both artists and representatives of cultural organisations with less experience in direct EU funding programmes. HETFA’s colleague was one of the workshop leaders during the event. She presented the major differences between national and European funding programmes, as well as available funding opportunities such as Creative Europe, Erasmus+ and Culture Moves Europe, with a focus on European cooperation projects under Creative Europe. After the presentation, participants worked in groups to co-design artistic project proposals in alignment with EU thematic priorities and funding frameworks.

In HETFA’s Creative Industries Lab our purpose is to understand and analyse the Cultural and Creative Sectors. In the recent years we made a wide-ranging analysis about the development of the Hungarian creative industries and about the impact of its everyday operation. We have also conducted research in the film industry, studied the situation of dubbing workers and analysed the operation of media markets. With our expertise in direct EU funding programmes, our aim is to support and pursue the fundraising and internationalisation efforts of the sector in Hungary.
