Interconnected in Culture for a Stronger Ecosystem

Call for applications: Spring 2022


The Collaboration Fellowships between Arab Countries and Europe aim to initiate and support collaborations of cultural organisations within the targeted Arab countries and their peers in Europe.

Up to 30 cultural professionals/managers from cultural organisations, initiatives or collectives (20 from the Arab region and 10 from Europe) will be selected to participate in the Collaboration Fellowships.

A call for application targeting organisations, initiatives or collectives working with youth, and least-favoured segments of society, and in underserved and underprivileged areas, who would be represented by young or influential cultural professionals/managers will be launched. This will be followed by a kick off meeting, sub-granting scheme, implementation of selected collaboration projects, placements, mentorship, among others, as well as follow up and evaluation meetings.

In addition to being the space to create partnerships and exchange knowledge, the meetings will serve in establishing a regional and international network of organisations working with youth, remote areas, and communities in underserved areas. Other learning activities will also be provided in coordination with Ecosystems Academy.
