New edition of our Fund-finder: Guide to funding opportunities for arts and culture

We have released the updated edition of our Fund-finder: Guide to funding opportunities for arts and culture, a guide to online information platforms and funding opportunities to support arts and cultural projects and initiatives with European or international dimensions. The guide is written by Marie Le Sourd, the Secretary General of On the Move.

Having started in 2014, Creative Europe is the main funding programme of the European Commission to support cultural projects, networks and platforms in Europe. However, other funding programmes of the European Commission can also fund projects with a cultural or artistic component. 

On another hand, while we often focus on shrinking budgets for the arts in Europe, we should not forget that a major problem for our sector today is access to relevant information about existing opportunities. In spite of decreased funding at national and local levels, there are still many public and private funding opportunities which can be alternatives to European funding or match the co-funding required for EU-funded projects.

Therefore, we produced this guide in 2015 as a useful resource for our members and the larger artistic community.  For this 2017 edition the author has updated web-links and information, added new funding schemes and additional examples, particularly for the EU funded programmes.
