“Support from the Culture of Solidarity Fund enabled us to produce The Walk – a theatre project featuring Little Amal, a 3.5 metres tall puppet of a 9-year-old girl. Walking 8,000 kilometres across Europe in search of her mother, Amal’s journey during the Covid-19 pandemic was enabled by relays of puppeteers. In a visionary act of solidarity with the plight of refugees, the project bore a single message on behalf of thousands of displaced children: Don’t forget about us.“

"Participating in the Europe Challenge has helped our local library to create a new vision for our city of Sant Boi de Llobregat, just miles from Barcelona’s busy international airport. By installing beehives at our library, we were able to champion biodiversity and experiment with our local community on ways of greening our city."

— La Biblioteca Jordi Rubió i Balaguer (Spain), grantee

“Over the years, we have collaborated with ECF on many successful projects - from i-Portunus (supporting green mobility of cultural professionals across Europe) to the European Pavilion (bringing together artists and thinkers for a pan-European alternative to the Venice Biennale's national pavilions). Working with ECF, we have forged a strong, mutually respectful partnership - and made a bunch of life-long international friends in the process!”

— Kultura Nova Foundation (Croatia), partner
