Roberto Cimetta Fund - Support Programme

Fund to support strengthening and sustainability of organisations and projects. For initiatives lead by Arab artists. Deadline: 31 January 2015
Dec 2014

In the context of international mobility and exchange of artists and cultural operators, the Roberto Cimetta Fund is launching a funding line to support strengthening and sustainability of organisations and projects.

This funding line aims to promote cultural and artistic initiatives lead by Arab artists and cultural operators developing local projects (venues, networks, platforms). The aim of this Fund is to stabilise projects in their local environment, allowing them to establish recognition and develop their networking capacities.

We hope through this fund to create a leverage effect that could contribute to rebalancing forces between Arab and European components in the exchange, as well as strengthening and sustaining cultural exchange between Arab regions.

The grants provided will not exceed 3000 € and can be considered as co-funding depending on the projects selected. Only artists and cultural operators from the Arab world can apply to this fund.

The experts and Board members of the Roberto Cimetta Fund will monitor the selected projects during their implementation.

A call for applications is launched from 1st December 2014 for two months. The evaluation and selection processes will take place during the months of February and March 2015. The results will be announced on 1st April 2015.

Three projects at least will be selected. The funds provided must be used within two years, unless agreed otherwise.

A Steering Committee composed of representatives of the French Ministry of Culture and Communication and the Roberto Cimetta Fund will meet at regular intervals to evaluate this first “experimental” phase and decide if it should be continued or re-defined.

The Roberto Cimetta Fund and the French Ministry of Culture and Communication hope that this fund can serve to strengthen projects that emerge following the benefits of a travel grant and at the same time support the financial autonomy of local independent cultural initiatives.

Applications can be made in Arabic, English and French.

Deadline: 31 January 2015
