EU launches EU4Culture project to support creative industries in Ukraine

The European Union is launching a new EU4Culture project aimed at supporting culture and creative industries in the Eastern Partnership countries: Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Republic of Moldova, and Ukraine.

On 21 May 2021, the project launched a call for proposals to support non-capital cities and towns in the Eastern Partnership countries to develop cultural development strategies, following the approach of the European Capitals of Culture, according to the EU Neighbours portal.

Eligible cities and towns have to apply until 30 June. Five towns or cities will initially be selected per country, receiving a grant of up to EUR 1,000 to develop a full application. Of these, a maximum of three per country will then receive a EUR 30,000 grant to prepare a full Cultural Development Strategy. Finally, one town or city per country will then be awarded a grant of up to EUR 300,000 to implement its strategy.

The ultimate aim of the project is to increase the role of Culture and Creative Industries for economic and social development, through the elaboration and implementation of Cultural Development Strategies based on a participatory approach and public-private dialogue, while preserving and developing multicultural and multi-ethnic dimensions.
