Two calls have been launched in support of European Heritage Label projects and European Heritage Days events under the ‘European Heritage Days’ joint action by the European Commission and the Council of Europe.
The European Heritage Days are the most widely celebrated participatory cultural events shared by people living in Europe. The action comprises of up to 70,000 events organised every year that attracts around 30 million visitors in the 50 European states which are signatory to the European Cultural Convention, including all six Eastern Partnership countries.
The Call for support of the European Heritage Label projects targets European Heritage Label sites, and invites them to carry out new cultural projects with a transnational dimension or reflecting on European values history and shared heritage. This call will highlight projects which foster digital transformation, sustainable cultural tourism, or promote capacity building of the sites – particularly in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. The call will provide up to €14,500 to 3 short-term projects.
The Call for European Heritage Days Stories aims to highlight the stories behind these events, and to give a voice to the individuals, organisations and associations who wish to share their story. Up to €10,000 will be awarded to the cultural heritage activity-focused projects. Applicants must have hosted or organised at least one European Heritage Days event between 18 August 2018 and 31 October 2021. It is also expected that applicants will plan to host or organise a European Heritage Days event during 2022.
The deadline for submissions of project proposals for both calls is 17 January, 2022.
