Opportunities and funding for creative, cultural and heritage projects

www.creativeeuropeuk.eu @CEDUK_Culture #creativeeurope



INTRODUCTION Creative Europe is the European Union’s programme to support the cultural, creative and audiovisual sectors. From 2014-2020, €1.46 billion is available to support European projects across 39+ countries with the potential to travel, reach new audiences and encourage skill-sharing and development. Creative Europe’s Culture sub-programme supports creative, cultural and heritage organisations through four funding opportunities: • Cooperation Projects European collaborative projects • European Platforms Distribution of new works • Literary Translation Translation of European works • European Networks Professional exchange Creative Europe runs prizes such as the European Union Prize for Literature and European Capitals of Culture. One-off cross-sector calls have included Refugee Integration Projects and the European Creative Hubs Network. It also has a MEDIA sub-programme, investing in film, television, new media and video games.

CREATIVE EUROPE’S OBJECTIVES AND PRIORITIES Collaboration is a key part of Creative Europe and the best projects are ideas-led, jointly developed with partners and respond directly to the following priorities and objectives. CREATIVE EUROPE’S OBJECTIVES

Capacity building: digitisation

• • • • •

• Help the cultural sector to adapt to new digital developments, and encourage the use of digital technologies from production and distribution to consumption.

Develop the sectors’ capacity to operate transnationally Promote the transnational circulation of works and people Reach new audiences in Europe and beyond Encourage innovation (artistic, business models) Strengthen policy making.

CREATIVE EUROPE’S PRIORITIES Cooperation Projects, the main funding opportunity of the Culture sub-programme (explained overleaf), supports partnership initiatives that respond to one or more of the following five priorities. Transnational mobility Mobility not just for mobility’s sake • • • • • • •

Improve professional skills, peer learning, education or training Artistic creation or production Career opportunities Reach new audiences Extend lifespan of tour or performance or exhibition Increase consumer choice or access Capacity building of cultural operators.

Capacity building: new business models • Explore new ways of working: diversification of income streams, compare and contrast new business models and marketing techniques. Capacity building: training and education • Create opportunities for training for staff, artists, professionals • Have a collaborative approach to training (peer-to-peer, learn from other sectors) • Help improve employability through formal and informal learning.

Audience development Working with audiences, not just for them • • • • • •

Involve audiences at any step of the creative process Develop new audiences and maintain existing audiences Conduct research on current and potential audiences Apply segmentation models i.e. groups/demographics/behaviour Map out your audience development strategy Integrate research and monitor progress – ask audiences what they think.

PLATFORM shift+ is a large Cooperation Project led by Pilot Theatre


COOPERATION PROJECTS Cooperation Projects is the Culture sub-programme’s main funding opportunity and around 70% of the budget is allocated to these projects. WHAT DOES THIS FUNDING SUPPORT? This funding opportunity supports cultural and creative transnational collaborative projects across any art form for a maximum duration of four years.

• You can apply for a grant of up to €2 million • You can apply for up to 50% of the total project budget. These grants are shared between partners and the partnership decides how much is allocated to each organisation.

Cooperation Projects give partners the time, space and funding to develop collaborative responses to jointly identified issues. They aim to create an impact that is more than the sum of the individual initiatives, and project applications need to demonstrate the added value of collaborative working.

Match funding is required and the partners decide how much each organisation agrees to contribute.


• • • •

Creative, cultural and heritage organisations working across any art form, such as visual arts, dance, theatre, literature, performance, music, heritage (tangible and intangible), architecture, design, circus, festivals, craft and fashion. This includes higher education institutions, local authorities, social enterprises, charities and companies operating in the cultural and creative sectors. Projects can be inter-disciplinary. The applicants (the project leader and the partners) must be active in the cultural and creative sectors and be legally established in one of the countries participating in the Culture sub-programme of Creative Europe. Individuals may not apply for a grant.
