IETM Mapping: European Fund-Finder, Updated for 2017


IETM has updated its Fund-Finder, the ‘Guide to funding opportunities for arts and culture in Europe, beyond Creative Europe – 2017 edition‘.

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 – the arts and culture can in fact be great resources for the development of territories, individuals and societies.

On another hand, while we often – rightly – 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. 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.

Building on these two considerations, IETM produced this guide in 2015 as a useful resource for its members and the larger artistic community.

For this 2017 update the author has updated weblinks and information, added new funding schemes and additional examples, particularly for the EU funded programmes.
