In 2020, the State set up an envelope of 2 billion euros to support, within the framework of France Relance, the cultural sector, hit hard by the health crisis, and allow it to project itself into the future.

The Culture de France Relance component allows a revival by and for heritage, combining activity in the territories and attractiveness of France (€614 million), the reconquest of our artistic creation and dissemination model (€426 million), support for artistic employment, the reinvigoration of young creation and the modernisation of the network of cultural higher education institutions (€113 million), the consolidation and modernisation of strategic cultural sectors heavily impacted by the crisis (€428 million), as well as the establishment of a strategy for the future for all the cultural and creative industries (€19 million in budget appropriations and €400 million under the 4th investment plan for the future over 5 years).

In 2021, the cumulative consumption of the Recovery Plan loans for Culture amounted to nearly 1.2 billion euros. Thus, 75% of the appropriations allocated to France Relance for culture (excluding AIP 4) have already been committed.

Today, almost all renovation projects for cathedrals and historical monuments not belonging to the State have been launched. All the resources aimed at supporting national creative and heritage operators have been used by the beneficiary institutions. Support measures for sectors (cinema, books, music, the press) and cross-cutting sectors have already benefited more than 8,000 beneficiaries in the regions of Metropolitan France and the French overseas territories. The envelopes delegated to operators (CNC, CNM, CNL, CMN) and public audiovisual companies are being rolled out: more than 90% are committed to the National Cinema Centre and 66% to the National Music Centre.

The commitment of the departments of the Ministry of Culture, central divisions and decentralized services since 2020 has made it possible to massively deploy France Relance in the territories.

This effort will continue throughout 2022.

This deployment is closely monitored at the territorial level, in order to identify the resources allocated to each region and each department. The data was updated in May and September of this year and is updated again as of December 31, 2021.
