ENCC: Up Grants 2024 ‘Culture for Inclusion’

Coloured marbles with the text 'UP Grants 2024 Culture for Inclusion'.

In this edition of Up Grants, ENCC is seeking to support socio-cultural centres (and other cultural organisations with a strong community focus) that are running or planning to launch impactful projects that promote inclusion. The programme will boost a culture centre’s initiatives by enhancing their impact and increasing their visibility.

Our Up Grants micro grant scheme is open to all socio-cultural centres based in a country joining the Creative Europe Programme. All ENCC members, members of members, and any other non-profit socio-cultural centres are welcome to submit one or multiple proposals.

In order to be eligible, the project needs to fit in one of these four thematic strands:

  1. E-inclusion and digital accessibility
  2. Building inclusive narratives
  3. Identification and removal of barriers for marginalised groups
  4. Equality and diversity criteria in boards and management

All eligible submissions, including those not selected for the grant, will be included in a comprehensive database on the ENCC website. This database will not only offer visibility at national and international levels, but also serve as a valuable resource for sharing and learning from diverse experiences in the field. The four winning organisations stand to benefit in several ways from participating in the Up Grants scheme.

One representative of each successful project will be invited to join ENCC’s annual conference in Riga, Latvia in June 2024, providing a platform to share experiences, network, and contribute to the broader discourse on socio-cultural initiatives for accessibility and inclusion. There they will be asked to organise a workshop related to the supported project.

Four selected projects will be awarded a grant of 3,500 EUR each, providing financial assistance for the implementation and development of their initiatives. Travel costs to the conference will be covered, as well as two nights of accommodation, together with the ticket to attend the whole event.
