With the call for proposals the Allianz Cultural Foundation wishes to reach parties using artistic and cultural means to create open spaces enabling critical discourse about Europe’s future, and also support exchange and networking across borders. The Foundation is seeking projects of a translocal nature, meaning that partners from different countries or different regions collaborate as well as projects which use the vantage points of the arts to think beyond their own horizon, to engage in new and unusual alliances, and enable as many different parties as possible to cooperate and engage.
The grant amount requested should be between 40,000 and 80,000 Euros.The grant amount requested may not exceed 50% of a project’s total costs. For projects spanning several years, a finance plan split up into individual years must be submitted. Applications may be submitted in German or English.
Successful applications will be announced in December 2020, following the meeting of the foundation’s board.
For projects beginning in the first half of 2021, however, all project outlines must be submitted by September 1. Detailed information about the open call can be found here.
The Allianz Cultural Foundation aims to create open spaces for project partners to discuss issues and experiment with new technologies as well as to develop sustainable structures, to create a lasting network of stakeholders in civil society, and give them the wherewithal to react to crisis situations with resilience.
"Culture includes not only culture and arts, but also the way of life and system of values. In this sense culture becomes the major power for intellectual renewal and human perfection." (European Council Report on European Cultural Policy)
