Allianz Kulturstiftung > Project Fund, ‘The Art of Bringing Europe Together’
Allianz Kulturstiftung, a not-for-profit cultural foundation for Europe, has opened applications for a new project fund, ‘The Art of Bringing Europe Together’, for activities starting in the first half of 2021.
Allianz Kulturstiftung is convinced that open societies depend on committed people who have the courage to confront controversy and think for themselves, and whose heads are full of ideas for a more just coexistence. They want to create open spaces for project partners to discuss burning issues and experiment with new technologies. They want to develop sustainable structures, create a lasting network of stakeholders in civil society, and give them the wherewithal to react to crisis situations with resilience. Digital technologies play an important role, but do not ensure solidarity in and of themselves. Allianz Kulturstiftung believe that Europe’s societies must be irritated and challenged, especially during these exceptional times, in order to remain open and develop further.
With this call for proposals, Allianz Kulturstiftung wish to reach parties using artistic and cultural means to create open spaces enabling critical discourse about Europe’s future, and also support exchange and networking across borders.
As a European cultural foundation, they are seeking projects of a translocal nature, meaning that partners from different countries or different regions collaborate. They seek projects which use the vantage points of the arts to think beyond their own horizon, to engage in new and unusual alliances, and enable as many different parties as possible to cooperate and engage. They are interested in projects at the interface of the arts and digitalisation which develop participatory and inclusive offerings.
The grant amount requested should be between 40,000 and 80,000 Euros, and should make up a maximum of 50% of a project’s total costs. All art genres are eligible to apply.
Deadline: 1 September 2020
