Cultural Activities to Promote Awareness of Key Communication Themes

The European Commission Representation in the UK is offering project co-funding for cultural activities to promote awareness of key communication themes set by the European Commission. The call is designed to provide part-financing in the form of grants for cultural events which address one or more of the themes listed below. Before applying for this call (see Annexes), please ensure you are eligible and can fully meet our specifications.

Types of project supported
The EC Representation in the UK recognises the value of cultural engagement to create understanding and awareness of its current policy issues, especially among groups which tend not to engage with the political process. Through its past activities in the cultural sphere it has sought to bring an awareness of common issues as they are discussed at European and national level to the local community. It has also sought to highlight the cultural, as well as political dimension of the UK's membership of the European Union.

As a result, the Representation in London is launching a call for proposals targeted specifically at UK cultural operators/organisations which are invited to draw on their policy expertise and experience in staging events to promote the themes listed below (see objectives and expected results under Section of 2013 Work Programme in the field of communication:

The Representation has identified a number of policy areas which merit particular attention in its communication activities. They include:
  • Economic recovery and growth;
  • European Year of Citizens 2013;
  • Mobility of artists;
  • Creativity and creative industries, and
  • Multilingualism

Budget available
  • The total budget earmarked for the co-financing of projects is estimated at 140 000 euro.
  • The maximum grant will be 25,000 euro.
  • The Commission expects to fund 6-10 proposals.
  • The Commission reserves the right not to distribute all the funds available.

Admissibility Requirements
  • Applications must be sent no later than the deadline date of 5 July 2013 (see section 14 for delivery details).
  • Applications must be submitted in hard copy (see section 14), using the application form and annexes (see Documents B and C).
  • Applications must be drafted in English.

Failure to comply with those requirements will lead to the rejection of the application.

Eligible activities

  • The Representation will not be overly prescriptive about the exact nature of the events staged (see examples of previously funded projects listed below) but they must:

  • Preferably be free to attend;
