In the Framework of the Creative Europe Cross-Sectoral Strand, a new call for proposals ‘Bridging culture and audiovisual content through digital’ has been recently launched. The cross-sectoral strand of the Creative Europe Programme, shall provide support to testing of new and cross-sectoral business approaches to funding, distributing and monetising creation.
The digital revolution enables the creation of new and innovative artistic creations, but also innovative ways of presenting cultural heritage. In the digital environment, convergence of media, in particular audiovisual, and content is profoundly affecting production and distribution models. By using digital tools, the production of culture and creative goods can find new forms of expression, enhance cultural experiences and bring about new forms of cooperation among artists and other actors.
This action will foster innovative cross-sectoral approaches and tools to facilitate access, distribution, promotion and monetisation of culture and creativity, including cultural heritage.

- featuring new forms of creation at the cross roads between different cultural and creative sectors, including the audiovisual sector, and through the use of innovative technologies, including virtual reality;
- fostering innovative cross sectoral approaches and tools to facilitate access, distribution, promotion and monetisation of culture and creativity, including cultural heritage.
