Perform Europe is an EU-funded project which aims to rethink cross-border performing arts presentation in a more inclusive, sustainable and balanced way, in all the countries of Creative Europe and the UK. Most importantly, Perform Europe offers the sector a unique chance to innovate the way we tour and present artistic works across borders in a truly fair, inclusive, ecological, and human-centred way.
The first step of the Perform Europe call for performing arts producers and presenters remains open for application until 7 July 2021 at 23:59 CEST on the Perform Europe digital platform.
In this first step, all interested producers (organisations, artists, collectives, companies and presenters that have produced an artistic work) and presenters (festivals, venues, and other organisations offering a presenting context) based in Creative Europe countries or in the UK are invited to apply to are invited to apply to possibly shape partnerships with other producers and presenters, co-create innovative touring and distribution proposals and apply for funding ranging from €10,000 to €100,000.
Perform Europe especially encourages presenters and producers that have less visibility in the cross-border artistic landscape to apply for this call. They welcome applications from women, artists and organisations based in rural areas, those having disadvantaged socio-economic or ethnic backgrounds, identify as LGBTQIA+, have disabilities and any other people that identify as part of an underrepresented group within the performing arts landscape.
