On January 30, with the support of the European Union, EU4Culture announced a 3rd call for mobility grants to support Artists and Cultural Professionals from the Eastern Partnership countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine. This call has a particular focus on supporting applicants from non-capital cities.
The EU4Culture Mobility grants are open for internships, study visits, conferences, professional development, and other activities that foster knowledge exchange and intercultural dialogue.
Artists or Cultural Professionals from all cultural sectors over 18 who are citizens or legal residents of these countries are eligible to apply. The call gives a unique opportunity to applicants who reside in non-capital cities by allocating half of the call budget specifically for them (This is not applicable to Belarusian and Ukrainian grantees).
The call supports four types of mobilities:
Mobility projects can be implemented between 1 June 2023 – 31 May 2024 in the member states of the European Union, EU partner countries and other European countries.
To apply for the EU4Culture Mobility grants, applicants must submit an action plan and budget for their proposed international mobility through the Goethe Application Portal (GAP).
The deadline for the open call is 27 March 2023, at 15:00 (Central European Time).
On February 23 at 13:00, an information session about the mobility grants will be held on the ZOOM platform. Applicants must pre-register to attend the meeting.
With the support of the European Union, during the first two EU4Culture grant calls, the project supported the mobility projects of 155 individuals. Two more calls will be announced before 2024. The European Union and partner organisations support culture’s role as an engine for economic development in the region. EU4Culture is implemented by Goethe-Institut (Lead), Czech Centers, Danish Cultural Institute, and Institut Français de Géorgie.
