Street Theatre Grants - Drama, Diversity and Development Project > Call for concept notes (Southern Mediterranean countries)

The organisers are looking to fund outstanding street theatre projects focusing on ethnic, religious and linguistic minorities (including refugees). Each project should aim to create profound and vibrant impact by challenging racism and discrimination experienced by a minority community. Moreover, projects will need to durably impact organizations and activists in the art and minority sectors by fostering collaborations and networking and improving local capacities.

In the framework of the European Union (EU) funded regional programme "Medculture”, Minority Rights Group International, in partnership with the Prince Claus Fund for Culture and Development, the Civic Forum Institute Palestine, and Andalus Institute for Tolerance and Anti-Violence Studies, is currently seeking proposals from artist groups, civil society organizations and companies for the street theatre section of the “Drama, Diversity and Development” project (DDD).

The DDD project is one of three culture projects funded by the EU within the regional programme "Medculture", which aims to support the efforts of the Southern Mediterranean countries in building deep-rooted democracy and to contribute to their sustainable economic, social and human development, through regional co-operation in the field of culture. It supports activities fostering cultural policy reform and reinforcing the capacity of cultural policy makers, as well as promoting investment and the development of cultural operators' business capabilities.

Selected projects, which will last 10 months, will receive funding from €35,000 up to €85,000 to cover up to 75% of their budget. The remaining 25% will need to be raised by the applicant as match funding.

Deadline: 4 May
