The European Award 2022
The last few years have seen significant change in the cultural and creative industries. This has been caused not only by the outbreak of COVID-19, and the rapid conversion to digital technologies, but also by the powerful impact of international social movements. Arts and cultural organisations are questioning their role within our societies, seeking new ways of engaging with audiences, and responding to the challenges of our times.

Working against all social, economic and geographic barriers, the Award encourages access to arts and culture for everyone, and champions new dialogues between the arts and audiences.
