Information and Capacity Development Session

Are you an up-and-coming artist or cultural professional based in Greece who’s looking for opportunities to travel in wider Europe to establish new creative partnerships and set up projects with your peers abroad?Or are you an independent artistic or cultural organisation that’s interested in collaborating with European partners, but not yet experienced in international collaborations and writing applications for international funders?

If so, this Information and Capacity Development Session – organised by the European Cultural Foundation (ECF)* in collaboration with the British Council and Theatre ENTROPIA – might be just the opportunity you’ve been looking for!

As ECF celebrates the 10-year anniversary of our STEP Beyond Travel Grants,** we are visiting Athens on 16 October to give a presentation to those who are interested in applying for STEP Beyond Travel Grants and improving their application-writing skills for international funders. The British Council (Athens)*** will also introduce their global work in arts and culture, highlighting the projects designed to build skills, knowledge and networks. And Theatre ENTROPIA**** – a successful ECF grantee – will share their experience with European collaborations and international funding schemes.

We are grateful to the Michael Cacoyannis Foundation for providing the space and facilitating this session.
