As Lead Partner of the European Co-operation Project Phone Home, Highway Productions was invited to attend the Creative Europe Kick-off Meeting held in Brussels last week.
We had the opportunity to meet with the people working for the EACEA, get ‘insider’ tips and tricks on how to tackle the oblications coming with the EU support, make sure that we conform with European Commission’s guidelines, meet and greet fellow beneficiaries and learn more about their projects.
It was an eye-opening experience that helped us put things in perspective, put a face to the name of the people that will be there to guide us throughout the process and feel part of the even growing and vibrant community of the European Creative Sector.
It left us feeling stressed, but excited about the months to come!
On behalf of Yorgos Lykiardopoulos (Producer – Highway Productions), our Phone Home partners and myself, I would like to thank the Agency for the invitation and promise that we will work hard for that golden star…! (Inside ‘Valor’ joke)
