The European Cultural Foundation is looking for projects which will bring a renewed understanding of Europe to people of all backgrounds, and inspires them to regard the world’s future as a shared enterprise. Collaboration Grants fund transnational, cross-sectoral activities by independent cultural and artistic organisations working together or with organisations from other sectors. The main applicant needs to be a cultural organisation based in Europe, while partner applicants can work in sectors outside the cultural field, in Europe. Particular attention will be paid to projects with efforts that are daring, different and challenge the status quo. The average award funded is €15,000 with the maximum being €30,000. Grants are given twice a year and the next deadline for applications will be March 1, 2011.
