Perform Europe: Call for Applications

Perform Europe is an EU-funded project which aims to rethink cross-border performing arts presentation in a more inclusive, sustainable and balanced way, in the 40 countries of Creative Europe and the UK. The project is an 18-month journey, which includes a research phase, launching a digital platform, testing a support scheme, and designing policy recommendations.

The Perform Europe application process is divided in two steps:

    1. This is the first step of the application process. The call is detailed below and remains open for application ;until 7 July 2021. In this first step, all interested producers (organisations, artists, collectives, companies and presenters that have produced an artistic work) and presenters (festivals, venues, and other organisations offering a presenting context) are invited to apply to be part of Perform Europe’s process of collective learning and networking organised by Perform Europe and supported by its digital platform. Applicants, selected in this step, will be invited to join two events, providing space for mentorship, pitching ideas, and sharing best practices of more sustainable and inclusive touring practices.
  1. In the second step, while and after participating in the learning and networking process, applicants selected in step 1 will shape partnerships among each other, co-create touring and distribution proposals and apply for Perform Europe grants. The total budget available is € 1,5 million; grant amounts will range from €10,000 to €100,000. The second call will be published at the end of July only for those selected in the first step (see a more detailed timeline of the Perform Europe application process at the very bottom of this call).
