Individual Project Grants in the field of culture and creative industries

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

This grant offers up to EUR 4,000 on your personal project in the field of youth work with the involvement of the EU or the UK. Make use of it to carry out the project you have been cherishing for a long time. 

We will support you in joining an online residency, participating in a well-known creativity competition, carrying out a digital photo exhibition featuring works by artists from Ukraine and the EU or launching a campaign about Ukrainian culture targeted at the UK. These are only a few examples out of thousands of initiatives that can be your personal project. 

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

What is a personal project?
  • A project to become a professional challenge for you. You should get the experience of project management, new skills and acquaintances. 
  • A brand-new project. Not one of the everyday tasks you work on.
  • A project involving the EU or the UK. You can both learn from European colleagues and present them your ideas. 
  • A project that drives you. A course, internship, networking, launch of a new project led and thousands of other initiatives. 
You can check the list of personal projects in the field of culture and creative industries that we already supported for some inspiration.
