Funding the Arts: Creating an Erasmus+ Proposal

Online. 17 May - 24 June 2024

The Spring 2024 edition of “Funding the Arts” aims to provide cultural organisations with the expertise, strategies, and insights necessary to craft a compelling Erasmus+ proposal

Funding the Arts gave me the tools and courage to submit an application together with two other RESEO members. Our proposal was successful and we were awarded a grant for a small scale partnership on our first try despite intense competition. I strongly recommend this training to any organisation with an interest in international cooperation.”

Birgitte Holt Nielsen, Producer, Figaros (Denmark)


While Erasmus+ is traditionally associated with the formal education sector, the programme offers many opportunities for international mobility and cooperation for artists and arts institutions involved in education, outreach and professional development.

The course will offer a practical, hands-on approach to developing an application for Erasmus+ strategic partnership funding. With a budget of €26 billion, Erasmus+ 2021-2027 offers more mobility and cooperation opportunities than ever before. 

The course will focus on Erasmus+ Partnerships for Cooperation, or transnational projects designed to develop and share innovative practices and promote cooperation, peer learning, and exchanges of experiences in the fields of education, training, and youth.
