FUNDING THE ARTS: Designing a Creative Europe Proposal

Online. 3 November 2023 - 31 January 2024

Whether you’re already active internationally or a newcomer to the world of European cooperation projects, “Funding the Arts” will provide you with the expertise, strategies, and insights necessary to craft a compelling Creative Europe proposal.  

An online training course created in partnership with Materahub, “Funding the Arts” will offer a practical, hands-on approach to developing funding applications for international cooperation projects under the European Commission Creative Europe programme. 


Creative Europe is the European Union programme for the cultural and creative sectors. Under the Culture sub-programme, the scheme offers financial support through grants for networks, platforms, and cooperation projects. 

The focus of this course will be the “European cooperation projects” funding line, which supports large, medium and small-scale initiatives piloted by organisations in the EU and beyond. The aim of the programme is to support access to arts and culture and foster innovation and creativity at a European level.
