The EU4Culture project, funded by the European Union, has launched its first call for proposals for ‘Support to non-capital cities and towns of the Eastern Partnership Region in Preparation of Cultural Development Strategies’, and published the accompanying guidelines for grant applicants.
The call for proposals will aim to assist cities and towns in five countries of the Eastern Partnership – Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine – to develop and implement a Cultural Development Strategy, following the approach of the European Capitals of Culture.
The first step in the process will be the selection of five cities or towns in each Eastern Partnership country, which will then further compete for financial support to develop their Cultural Development Strategy.
The deadline for the submission of concept notes is 30 June.
Applicants are invited to register and submit their proposals on the official Goethe-Institut’s Application Platform (GAP).
The new EU4Culture project targets the cultural and creative sector in the Eastern Partnership countries, aiming to support the development of culture as an engine for growth and social development across the region.
