The New European Agenda for Culture provides the framework for the next phase of cooperation at EU level, which starts in 2019. Member States define the main topics and working methods for policy collaboration on culture through Work Plans for Culture adopted by the Council of Ministers.

The plan is considered a strategic instrument setting priorities and defining concrete actions to address the increasing shift to digital technologies, globalisation and growing societal diversity in the area of cultural policy.

The Work Plan sets out the following five priorities for European cooperation in cultural policy-making:

  • Sustainability in cultural heritage
  • Cohesion and well-being
  • An ecosystem supporting artists, cultural and creative professionals and European content
  • Gender equality
  • International cultural relations

These priorities are complemented by 17 concrete actions with clearly defined working methods and target outputs.
