Culture of Solidarity: First round grantees
We launched the Culture of Solidarity Fund, looking to support imaginative cultural initiatives that, in the midst of the global pandemic crisis reinforce European solidarity and the idea of Europe as a shared public space.
We received more than 2,500 applications from all corners of Europe and beyond, in the first round. Out of it, we welcome the first 29 new grantees and their projects into our network! Their imaginative projects range from new international institutes for artists, virtual learning platforms for creatives engaging Black and African communities in Europe to digital handbooks that offer support during COVID-19.
