Collaboration Grants funds cross-sectorial organisations to create artistic and cultural transnational activities.

Collaboration Grants are awarded to cultural organisations and organisations outside the cultural sector that are working together on artistic and cultural projects across different countries of wider Europe (see below for a list of eligible countries). At least one partner applicant must work in a sector outside the cultural field but the main applicant should work in the cultural sector.

This call for 2013 Collaboration Grants will align with the focus towards a new European community of practice. By specifically looking for cross-sectoral collaborations, ECF hopes to ignite creative movements that are already happenning across Europe and deserve to be recognised. We will be supporting and connecting cultural change-makers in Europe whose work contributes to an ongoing cross-sectoral debate on Europe and Europe’s place in the world and contributes to sustainable societies.

We have funded a vast array of projects in the past, bringing new ideas and inspired visions to diverse audiences across Europe. In 2012, we awarded 13 Collaboration Grants having received a total of 420 applications. You can download the full list of successful Collaboration Grants awarded in 200920102011 and 2012.
