EU4Culture launches call for cultural and cross-innovation projects in the Eastern Partnership countries

The EU-funded EU4Culture project has announced a call to support cultural and cross-innovation projects in non-capital cities of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova, and Ukraine. The call is designed to promote intercultural cooperation and dialogue within the ‘EU4Culture Cities Network’.

The call supports two types of projects:

  • Cultural projects, focused on cultural and artistic development, production, or presentation, promoting local cultural traditions and creating spaces for cultural exchange.
  • Cross-innovation projects, aiming to break down barriers between different sectors and promote the development of local ecosystems by combining culture, creativity, tourism, and other sectors.

The call is open for non-profit organisations (public or private) registered in Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova or Ukraine, that have general operational activities for at least 2 years. Proposals can be submitted by individual organisations or in a consortium with two to five partners from eligible countries. The lead applicant must have a record of implemented activities in one of the “EU4Culture Network Cities” (see the list below), while this criterion is not mandatory for co-applicants.

The competition will support projects lasting up to 10 months, which will be implemented between October 2023 and July 2024. 

The maximum requested grant per project is €25,000.

The deadline for applications is 25 July 2023, at 18:00 (Central European Time). To apply, interested applicants need to fill in the application form on the Goethe Application Portal (GAP) and submit the requested documents. A dedicated info session will take place on 5 June (registration link).  

The ‘EU4Culture Cities Network’ is a platform established under the EU4Culture project aiming to build collaboration in culture and creative sectors within 14 selected cities which have received EU funding to prepare Cultural Development Strategies. These cities include Charentsavan, Ijevan, and Sevan in Armenia; Khirdalan, Lankaran, and Sheki in Azerbaijan; Kutaisi, Poti, and Zugdidi in Georgia; Cahul and Orhei in the Republic of Moldova; and Odesa, Rivne, and Vinnytsia in Ukraine.

The EU4Culture project is implemented by Goethe-Institut (Lead), Czech Centers, Danish Cultural Institute, Institut Français de Géorgie.
