Set up in response to the coronavirus crisis, the Culture of Solidarity Fund supports innovative cultural projects that cross national borders, professional sectors and artistic disciplines and that are eager to find collaborative solutions to systemic problems that limit the prospects of their communities in the wake of the pandemic.
This latest call focuses on communities in parts of Europe which are often at the peripheries of public interest and that contend with the coronavirus crisis within a context of chronic economic decline brought on by deindustrialisation, rural depopulation, and/or changing economic and political forces. And while these regions are not alone in experiencing the increasingly harmful cascade of effects issuing from environmental degradation, climate change, and biodiversity loss, they may believe they lack the necessary resources to mitigate them.
This call is open to cultural organisations as well as organisations from other fields of work and public institutions that are based and/or active in Eastern Germany or in European regions similarly affected by deindustrialisation, population decline, social dissolution, failing public infrastructure, and ecological crises.
It supports short- or longer-term collaborative actions that address, through cultural work, one or more challenges relating to socio-economic transformation and post-pandemic questions.
Grants are available in two amounts subject to the number of partners:
€40,000 – two partners.
€60,000 – three partners or more.
The grant term will be up to 12 months, starting on 1 November 2021 and ending on 31 October 2022. Project activities may take place no earlier than the starting date and no later than 31 October 2022
