International cooperation grants

Sector: Culture and creative industries
Type: Grant
Location: Ukraine and online
Deadline: Finished
Organiser: House of Europe

International cooperation grants fund collaborative cultural projects of organisations from Ukraine and the EU, including the UK: electronic music festivals with international line-up, digital residencies for women artists, documentary theatrical plays, contemporary art exhibitions, displaying works both in the streets of the city and online. You can get up to EUR 50,000 to carry out your bold idea.
Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we are looking for projects with a digital component. You can go completely online or combine online activities with in-person events. Every out-of-the-box idea is fine, as long as it can adapt to the various pandemic scenarios. 

Study the application guidelines carefully and apply: we are waiting for your projects. 

What do I get?
  • A chance to bring to life an innovative out-of-the-box idea that will become a centrepiece of your organisation’s portfolio.
  • Up to EUR 50,000 to cover essential expenditures: staff costs, external consultations, translation, design, production, consumables, rent of space and equipment, travel costs.
  • An opportunity to work in a team with at least one organisation from abroad, having a team of professionals with various backgrounds, reaching international audiences, and establishing long-lasting connections across borders.
  • An opportunity to elevate the Ukrainian art scene. For Ukrainian organisations, it is a chance to showcase their works internationally, for organisations from the EU and the UK an opportunity to take part in boosting the cultural scene at the heart of Europe.
  • Membership of our alumni community, which means new contacts with the most proactive Ukrainian, EU and UK cultural actors, networking meet-ups, and even more grants.

Good to know
