It was recently announced that in 2013 the European Commission's Culture Programme will accept grant proposals for cooperation projects involving Canadian cultural organisations and at least three European arts/culture heritage partners. This is an important opportunity for Canadian and European institutions looking to advance their international agenda and develop partnerships in Europe.
The EU’s Culture programme (2007-2013) has a budget of €400 million (approximately Cdn$ 5,6 millions) for the development of cross-border co-operation between cultural operators and institutions. The Culture programme aims to achieve three main objectives: to promote cross-border mobility of those working in the cultural sector; to encourage the transnational circulation of cultural and artistic output; and to foster intercultural dialogue.
The only eligible applicants are public or private organisations with legal personality whose main activity is in the cultural field (areas of cultural or creative activity) and whose head office is in one of the countries taking part in the Programme.
The deadline for applications is 3 May every year.
