Creative Youth Grants

Sector: Culture and creative industries
Type: Grant
Location: Ukraine
Deadline: 21 February 2022 at 15:00 Kyiv time
Organiser: House of Europe: Goethe-Institut Ukraine

These grants support projects helping 16-25-year-olds in the regions to uncover their talents. These can be sound recording labs, inclusive theatre performances, movie camps, urban projects aiming to reimagine public spaces, and other activities that enable young people to be creative. Because we believe there is no lack of gifted people in the cities and villages, but there is a lack of funding and opportunities for them. 

We will not leave you on your own with the project. A mentor from the EU or the UK will become your partner, helping you with project realisation and advising participants online. 

Read the application guidelines carefully, apply, and get the chance to carry out the project that will become the gem in your portfolio.

Learn about the pitfalls and ask your question to the grant manager — join the live stream of Facebook on Wednesday 7 February at 16.00.

What do I get?
  • EUR 6,000–7,300 to carry out the project you cherish
  • A kindred spirit in the person of a mentor from the EU or UK: you can choose one yourself or we will find the right person for you 
  • An opportunity to advance the artistic community in the regions and help local creative young people uncover their talents
