Call for culture projects launched in Tunisia
The EU-funded ‘Tfanen - Tunisie Créative’ project is launching the 2nd phase of its calls for proposals for three cultural funds with a total budget of €1.75 million (approximately 5 million TND). The deadlines for submission vary from 3 November to 2 December, depending on the funds.
The three funds are the ‘Fund for local cultural involvement’, the ‘Fund for support to creativity’ and the ‘Fund for the sustainability of festivals and the valorisation of heritage’.
The three calls for projects are open to various cultural operators, such as civil society actors, cultural entrepreneurs, public sector institutions and artists. Funding will range from €10,000 to €100,000 per project (depending on funding and lots), for projects ranging from 3 to 12 months.
Projects promoting access to culture at local level, particularly in disadvantaged areas, which will be developed and managed in networks by different types of partners (civil society organisation, state bodies, independent cultural actors, etc.) will be valued. Particular attention will be paid to projects benefiting young people and women.
“Culture is one of the engines of the democratic transition,” said the Ambassador of the European Union to Tunisia, Patrice Bergamini: “It unites and stimulates, it offers a unique space for sharing, and in Tunisia, it is one of the priorities of the European Union’s action, which puts at the disposal of all the Tunisian cultural actors new financing opportunities and capacity-building activities in order to develop a quality cultural offering throughout the country.”
