Open Call Roberto Cimetta Fund ǀ Valletta 2018 Mobility Funding

The Roberto Cimetta Fund and the Valletta 2018 Foundation, responsible for the implementation of Valletta’s title of European Capital of Culture 2018 are collaborating on an initiative to improve and increase mobility of artists in the Euro-Mediterranean region.

This initiative will see a series of open calls for travel grants being offered from 2015 to 2018; artists and cultural operators living and working in the Euro-Arab region who wish to undertake collaborative projects satisfying the criteria below are invited to apply.

Both the Roberto Cimetta Fund and Valletta 2018 see freedom of mobility as essential to the development of the arts and strongly support the right of the artist to travel freely. In the context of Valletta’s title of European Capital of Culture 2018, where Valletta is physically and culturally a crossroads and meeting point in the centre of the Mediterranean, this fund aims to aid mobility, communication, collaboration and exchange between diverse cultures and to contribute to local, community participation in the arts in the broader context of the Euro-Arab zone.

The second open call 2016 is opened on 1st July 2016 for one month; the Cimetta Fund will programme a series of calls up until December 2018.

Applications can be made in Maltese, Arabic, English or French.

Deadline: 31 July
