Slovene cultural producers have been consistently successful in the European Union's programmes for the cultural and creative sectors. Today, these programmes are united under the name Creative Europe. The national information office Creative Europe Desk Slovenia is led by the dedicated and trusted NGO Motovila Institute.
Through an impressive performance of their application-genius, in 2020, 4 project leaders managed to claim no less than 1,4 million euros, while 14 Slovene producers are engaged as partners in the granted Cooperation Projects of the Culture subprogramme. The producers located in Ljubljana, Škofja Loka and Kranj have been collaborating with 94 partners from 24 countries, mostly the Netherlands (10), Italy (10), Spain (9), France (9), UK (6), and Greece (5). This time performing arts projects (music, theatre, dance) prevail (almost 50%), while the number of cultural heritage and visual arts projects is not scarce as well (circa 20% each).
Besides, the EACEA has selected 13 projects within the Cultural Cooperation Projects in the Western Balkans scheme, and among them supported one project with Slovenian leader (Pazi!Park Association) while 7 Slovenian partner organisations are involved in further sucessful projects.
