Creative Europe Desk UK (CED UK), managed by the BFI and the British Council, is the UK contact point for the European Commission’s Creative Europe programme.

With a network of specialist teams working from offices located around the UK, it will provide a gateway to the new programme's €1.46 billion budget for 2014-2020.

The new CED UK team is led by Agnieszka Moody, who brings more than a decade of experience in running MEDIA Desk UK. Christoph Jankowski, former manager of the UK Cultural Contact Point, will be Head of Culture, England.

Thanks to increased investment from partners across the UK, the newly expanded network now has offices in Belfast and Manchester in addition to the offices in Glasgow, Cardiff and London.

CED UK partners include Arts Council England, Arts Council Northern Ireland, Creative Scotland and the Welsh Government.
