Coinciding with the final plenary session of the current European Parliament, the Committee on Culture and Education (CULT) has released a report on the 2019-2024 mandate period.
In a summary of the activity report, Culture Action Europe highlights the Committee on Culture and Education’s (CULT) efforts to advocate for fair working conditions in the cultural sector, led by rapporteur Domènec Ruiz Devesa (S&D). The Committee also established a proper legal foundation for the 2021-2027 Creative Europe Programme (Massimiliano Smeriglio, S&D) and the European Capitals of Culture (Željana Zovko, EPP).
Further, the Committee produced own-initiative reports urging the European Commission to take action on the New European Bauhaus (co-rapporteur Marcos Ros Sempere, S&D), conditions for authors in the European music streaming market, and transparent recommendation algorithms on streaming platforms (García del Blanco, S&D). They additionally addressed the future of the European book sector (Tomasz Frankowski, EPP). Another report, led by Monica Semedo (Renew), focused on the situation of artists during the pandemic and cultural recovery in the EU, urging member states to allocate 2% of their Recovery and Resilience Facility funds to culture.
During this mandate, socialist rapporteurs spearheaded several crucial initiatives for the cultural sector. Among the current 29 members of the CULT Committee, at least 17 are reportedly seeking re-election, including almost all of the Committee’s leadership.
