The EU-funded project Euro-Egyptian Cultural Programme (EECP) is launching a call for European artists to join a residency programme in Egypt working with Egyptian independent cultural actors.
Furthermore, the purpose of the residency is to offer the artists from the European Union and the United Kingdom the opportunity to spend time in a new atmosphere and environment, to support cultural and artistic exchange, nurture experimentation and new ideas, and support research and the development of new work. An additional aim is to implement artistic activities or programmes that lead to Egyptian audiences, new production/creation, new markets and new visibility.
This year EUNIC and the EECP plan to support artists in performing fields including music, dance, and drama. EUNIC and the EECP encourage freedom of expression, gender empowerment and balance, dance as a tool for expression, empowerment and contemporary dance.
EUNIC will offer up to three artists a three-week stay (either February 2023 or March 2023) including airfares, PCR test, honorarium, accommodation, per diem and transportation.
Applications are open to emerging European artists with 4-7 years of experience from all disciplines of performing art within the borders of the European Union and the United Kingdom aged between 25-35 years old.
