Perform Europe - the European funding scheme which wants to reimagine how we tour and collaborate - is back. The call for applications is now open until 31 March 2024.
Perform Europe will support sustainable, inclusive, balanced and innovative touring of performing arts works in the Creative Europe countries.
On 9 February 2024, we held an information and peer sharing session where IETM offered its members an opportunity to learn about the Perform Europe Open Call, the Perform Europe Matchmaking Tool and the project´s Toolkit for applicants.
Perform Europe will be granting €2,1 million to a minimum of 35 touring partnerships.
Several IETM members have benefited from the previous edition of Perform Europe (2020 - 2022). We invited a selection of them - as well as other Perform Europe beneficiaries - to share their insights and experience with the programme.
This session was intended for both IETM members who are already planning a Perform Europe partnership application as well as those who have not yet started that process but are interested to know more.
