Support to European platforms
This strand of funding is for the support of European platforms to showcase emerging talent and stimulate Europe-wide programming of cultural and artistic activities.
Deadline: Thursday 6th April 2017 12:00 Brussels time (11:00 Irish time).
Coordinating entities that have a minimum of 10 member organisations in at least 10 different participating countries are eligible to apply. The main specific objectives of this strand are to co-finance activities aimed at:
- fostering the development of emerging talent and stimulating the transnational mobility of cultural and creative players and circulation of works;
- increasing recognition and visibility of artists and creators with a strong commitment in terms of European programming through communications activities and branding strategy, including, where appropriate, the creation of a European quality label.
Full guidelines for Support to European Platforms can be downloaded here.
Examples of projects supported under this strand: Aerowaves is a hub for dance discovery in Europe and has partners in 33 countries (including Dublin Dance Festival). The platform identifies the most promising new work by emerging dance artists and then promotes it through cross-border performances.
Are you interested in perhaps joining a European Platform? From time to time we receive requests from coordinating entities seeking expressions of interest from arts and culture organisations who are interested in joining a platform. Please let us know if you would be interested in receiving notification about these. We currently have requests from the following:
Greek theatre organisation looking for Irish partners (theatres and theatre organisations; drama schools; arts departments of colleges and universities) – the aim of the platform will be the exchange of young theater and performance art creators to develop new techniques to approach social problems through theater and numerous types of arts.
