European Cultural Foundation – 2nd round of European Culture of Solidary Fund announced

The European Culture of Solidary Fund supports imaginative cultural initiatives that, in the midst of the global pandemic crisis reinforce European solidarity and the idea of Europe as a shared public  space.

The fund is open to individuals, collectives and organisations from all sectors and civil society.  Grants ranging from €5,000 to €50,000 are available for a wide range of activities from seed money for entirely new initiatives and co-funding for scaling up already existing ideas to European level.  The grant can cover material costs, office, online co-working and communication tools, production costs and also expert fees and staff costs.

The second window will open on 22 June and will close on 14 July at 13:00 Central European Time.  Further details can be found here.
