After having successfully completed the Perform Europe pilot project in 2022, the Perform Europe consortium - IETM, European Festivals Association (EFA), Circostrada, European Dancehouse Network (EDN), IDEA Consult and with the addition of new partner Pearle* - Live Performance Europe - have been mandated by the European Union to lead Perform Europe once again for the next three years, 2023-2026.
THIS IS PERFORM EUROPE
Perform Europe is a funding scheme for the European performing arts sector, supporting sustainable, inclusive, balanced and innovative collaboration projects of partners across the 40 Creative Europe countries. Particular attention is given to projects that work with and include underrepresented areas or groups in these Creative Europe countries.
