‘Culture Helps / Культура допомагає’ — an EU co-funded project implemented by Insha Osvita (UA) and zusa (DE) — opens a call for applications for collaboration grants. You can receive up to €40,000 for the implementation of international partnership projects of 2 or 3 organisations, focused on integration of people, who were forced to leave their homes because of the Russian full-scale war against Ukraine.
The Collaboration grants programme offers support for cultural organisations that emphasise work with people who have been forced to move to safer regions of Ukraine or Creative Europe countries because of the Russia’s war in Ukraine. The project idea must be focused on displaced people or refugees, facilitation of their integration into new contexts through culture, and offer activities that respond to processing war trauma and support of their mental health. Additional efforts should be put into involving families and children in the project activities. The proposed activities can have a form of workshops, co-creation processes, educational projects, art therapy or similar.
Key aspects of the programme:
- ‘Culture helps’ includes 3 calls for Collaboration grants, which will be announced in 2023-2024.
- The next call will be launched in August 2023. Each call will support around 10 project grants.
- 50% of the total grants are expected to be disbursed in Ukraine, 50% in Creative Europe countries.
- Maximum amount of the grant is €25,000 for collaboration of two organisations, maximum €40,000 for collaboration between three organisations.
Activities under this call should end by 31 March 2024.
