The call launches on 1 December 2023 and stays open until 31 March 2024. It’s aimed at supporting innovative models for inclusion and greening in the performing arts. Our €2.1 million fund will be allocated to at least 35 successful partnership proposals, with a maximum grant of €60,000 for each selected project. All organisations and professionals working in the performing arts, and legally based in one of the 40 Creative Europe Countries, are eligible to apply. We particularly welcome applications by or involving underrepresented areas or groups.
