ACP-UE Culture Support mechanisms
The ACP-EU Culture Programme operates according to a logic of decentralisation and reinforcement of cultural sectors in the ACP regions. Its support enables the setting up of support funds for the cultural and audiovisual sectors managed primarily by regional or international organisations, but including a majority ACP component.
These partner organisations are responsible for sub-granting funds to actors in the field on the basis of annual calls for proposals. The support mechanisms thus established must also include a significant technical support and capacity building component for operators in the field.
