Open Call 2018: Courageous Citizens

We are delighted to invite you – Europe’s Courageous Citizens – to submit an application to research and develop ideas around creating positive change and equality at a local, regional and/or European level. There are many examples of courageous citizens drawing on culture and creativity as a way of contributing to better ways of living together. These individuals or collectives work with their communities, peers, policy-makers or institutions, and include unheard or dissenting voices. 

The European Cultural Foundation believes these courageous citizens can inspire the creation of models, movements and policies, acknowledging the role culture can play in making positive change. Your ideas might have the potential to develop into an inspiring project in the (near) future. 

The Research and Development Grant provides seed money that offers you the opportunity to explore new and daring concepts. We actively support your knowledge development by introducing an “Idea Incubator Workshop” as a key element of this grant scheme.

These workshops take place at: 4iS Plataforma Para A Inovação Social (Portugal); We Make Places CIC (UK); Eutropian (Italy); Right to the City (Croatia) and Les Têtes de I’Art (France).

Deadline for applications was May 9 2018 18.00 CET.

We hosted two Q&A sessions to answer any possible questions: 19 April and 2 May 2018.
