European Cultural Foundation > Second round of Culture of Solidarity Fund
The European Cultural Foundation invites you to apply for the second round of the European Culture of Solidarity Fund. Set up at the beginning of the pandemic crisis, the fund continues to support imaginative cultural initiatives that reinforce European solidarity and the idea of Europe as a shared public space.
The Fund continues to support imaginative cultural initiatives - big or small - that reinforce solidarity and deal with the aftermaths of the pandemic for European societies.
This second round also looks to re-unite Europe and its people in solidarity through supporting local cultural players in building alliances across nations, borders and differences with a broader European idea in mind. It specifically welcomes proposals that grow immediate crisis responses into more future- oriented solutions and extend from local levels to building cross-national alliances and initiatives of pan-European solidarity.
The Fund is open to individuals, collectives and organisations from all sectors and civil society at large and supports short- or long-term actions that either/or:
» preserve and expand a European Culture of Solidarity as the key element for keeping Europe an open and shared public space for everyone;
» envision the future of making cultural experiences and people-to-people interaction possible across European borders after inward-looking times of social distancing and national crisis response;
» imagine, tell stories and prepare the ground for a culture-driven revival of a united Europe during and after the crisis.
The Fund has grants available in three amounts:
Small: up to €12.500
Medium: €12.500 – 25.000
Large: €25.000 – 40.000
line co-working and communication tools, production costs, but also expert fees and staff costs.
Deadline: 14 July 2020 (open from 22 June).
