The Cultural and Creators Friendship Group – CCFG
The Cultural Creators Friendship Group (CCFG) is a cross-partisan and supranational coalition in the European Parliament (EP), consisting of currently 28 members from 6 different political groups and 14 different countries. It aims at improving the whole European cultural ecosystem with a focus on the Cultural and Creative Sectors (CCS) – and especially on the situation and conditions of creators of cultural works, e.g. authors, performers and artists.
The CCFG is not an official organ of the European Parliament and therefore does not represent the EP or speak on its behalf. It is an informal cooperation scheme among Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) that are interested to forward and promote its principles as enshrined in our CCFG Manifesto (see below). Interest groups or individuals representing the CCS can officially support the CCFG and participate in our meetings. Essential requirement for supporters is being registered in the transparency register of the EU institutions.
