Open Call Climate Cultures Call

The Allianz Foundation's Climate Cultures Call supports projects and initiatives that are situated at the intersection between climate and culture, and work toward sustainable solutions for open societies and a healthy and habitable planet.

There are already many visionairies who are trying out and developing new and different forms of cultural practice: plans for innovative urban housing or sustainable rural mobility; art projects for the equal coexistence of people, animals and plants; campaigns for the recognition of climate change as a reason for displacement; or congresses for networking civil society, climate research and art across disciplinary boundaries. The Allianz Foundation wants to promote such initiatives – approaches to real transformation that involve a willingness to experiment, and that are open-minded and forward-looking.

Ten projects will be funded by the foundation in which artists, cultural workers, activists, environmentalists, citizens’ initiatives, NGOs, scientists, start-ups or urban planners from Europe and the Mediterranean establish alliances for a new climate culture. Projects can be funded for up to 50,000 euros. The submitted projects should establish new alliancesfor fighting the climate crisis in a way that includes social and cultural perspectives, create new narratives that make the necessary socio-ecological change tangible as a benefit and motivate more people to take action for the climate, include many voices and take intersectional, cross-generational or postcolonial perspectives into account, among others as well as raise questions about justice for the societies of the present and for future generations.

The foundation is looking for actors from the civil society, arts and culture, and environmental protection sectors. The organisers explicitly welcome applications from younger generation as well as from people or organisations that work across borders and/or do outreach work with target groups that are especially diverse. Applications should be submitted until 1 January 2023. Find more information here.
