Three calls for proposals allow the ACP-EU Culture programme to provide concrete support to the cultural and creative industries of ACP countries. Covering all cultural sectors, these calls aim to strengthen the capacities of artists and cultural operators, improve the quality and promotion of their productions and facilitate their access to innovative financing mechanisms. A total budget of 36 million euros is planned for this purpose.
The programme inaugurates an innovative mechanism of cascading grants, by selecting beneficiary organizations – mainly in ACP countries – which are then responsible for publishing calls for projects on an annual basis to operators from all sectors of culture.
