The Situation: New Challenges and Opportunities for Action in Civil Society
The coronavirus crisis is a test, but also an opportunity for social cohesion in Europe. It has redrawn borders which we believed overcome, deepened inequalities and made us realize our social vulnerability. At the same time, we are experiencing the emergence of direct forms of solidarity, new ideas for social coexistence and original formats in the arts. All over the world, people have reacted to the crisis courageously and inventively. When public life ground to a standstill, cultural creators were forced to redefine the role of the arts: in participatory, digital ways, from their homes, in the streets.
Supporting Projects which Challenge and Surprise
As a European cultural foundation, they are seeking projects of a translocal nature, meaning that partners from different countries or different regions collaborate. They seek 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. They are interested in projects at the interface of the arts and digitalization which develop participatory and inclusive offerings.
Allianz Kulturstiftung accepts project proposals all year.
