Brussels, 27 October 2016/ ACP: Supporting the cultural sector in African, Caribbean and Pacific countries has been a key focus for the ACP Group, with increasing support allocated from the Intra-ACP envelopes of the European Development Fund (EDF), under the ACP-EU partnership agreement.

On Friday, 28 October, a special conference at the ACP House will examine the main results and impacts of ACP-EU programmes in the cultural sector, supported with up to €14.33 million under the 9th cycle of the EDF from 2000 - 2007 and up to €30 million under the 10th EDF covering 2008-2013.

Professionals and experts from ACP countries, along with representatives of ACP embassies and missions based in Brussels are invited to attend the conference, under the theme "ACP-EU support to cultural sectors: Results and perspectives". 

The main results of the evaluation of the intra-ACP programmes in the field of culture will be presented, along with the findings from three significant studies under the ACPCultures+ Programme, related to:

- economic and social impact of six ACP festivals

- challenges and economic and artistic benefits of online dissemination and distribution of ACP cultural content

- alternative and innovative funding mechanisms for ACP cultural industries
