This is an opportunity to get up to EUR 2,000,000 for a big cultural project created in collaboration by at least three organisations from 39 countries. 

Digitize rare folklore materials, host an architecture biennale, launch green residencies for artists, promote inclusive books for children and youth, create street art that encourages critical thinking, or performances reflecting the concept of faith. Look for inspiration among the projects already supported by Creative Europe during previous contests.

You will work on the project for up to four years. It can include several areas of culture and creative industries, or be interdisciplinary. 

The competition is managed by the European Education and Culture Executive Agency. This is one of the thousands of EU opportunities for Ukraine.
