ACPCULTURES+ Program: Second Call for Proposals

As part of their cooperative efforts, the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States (ACP) and the European Union (EU) have developed the ACP-EU Support Program for the ACP Cultural Sector (ACPCULTURES+), which combines the ACP Films and ACP Cultures programs. Implemented by the Secretariat of the African, Caribbean and Pacific Group of States and supported by the European Union, this program was created to help develop and structure cultural industries in ACP States.

The second call for proposal for the ACPCULTURES+ program was launched on September 18 and will remain open until December 20, 2012.

The specific objectives of the current call for proposals are

  • Reinforcing the creation and production of cultural services and goods in the ACP States through an approach integrated with distribution networks;
  • Supporting increased access to local, regional, intra-ACP, European and international markets for the cultural goods and services of the ACP States;
  • Building the capacities of culture sector professionals in ACP States;
  • Improving the regulatory environment of the culture sector in ACP countries.

For full details on this second call for proposals, please consult the European Commission website.
