Culture and Creativity

European Platforms’ projects are open to all within the cultural and creative sectors. This funding opportunity will support projects that aim to increase the visibility and circulation of European emerging artists and works outside their own borders (in Europe and beyond). It supports projects that will increase cultural access, participation in culture, as well as audience engagement and development. Projects are also meant to contribute to EU policy priorities in the culture field. The circulation of artists and works could contribute to new and/or more sustainable cultural public spaces. The action is expected to support +/- 15 platforms with a balanced coverage across different sectors.
