We remain committed to supporting the UK creative industries and are consulting closely with stakeholders to ensure that any ongoing funding commitments best serve the UK's national interest.

The Prime Minister made clear in her speech in Florence that, where possible, and where they are greatly to the UK and EU's joint advantage, we will want to continue taking part in specific policies and programmes like Creative Europe.
