Performing Arts Japan Programme for Europe (PAJ Europe) 2019-2020
Call for Applications
The Japan Foundation's Performing Arts Japan (PAJ) Programme for Europe provides financial support to European organisations (such as festivals, theatres, arts promotion companies) that are planning performing arts projects related to Japan. Performing Arts Programme is now accepting proposals for projects to take place between 1st April 2019 and 30th June 2020.
Performing Arts Japan Programme for Europe (PAJ Europe) was started by the Japan Foundation in 2006 to revitalise and facilitate the exchange between leading artists in Europe and Japan. The main feature of this scheme is that this grant will be made available to those organisers based in Europe who are planning to organise Japan-related performing arts projects in European regions.
The primary objectives of PAJ Europe are to:
- support the effective introduction of carefully selected Japanese performing arts projects that have a plan for an even geographic coverage across Europe;
- assist well-envisioned Europe-Japan collaborative projects through the creational phases of new works;
- encourage educational and outreach activities in addition to the actual performances, such as workshops and residency activities; and
- acquaint European audiences with Japanese performing arts in the context of their history, culture and development.
The PAJ Europe programme comprises two categories: touring grants and collaboration grants.
To apply for the programme, please read the guidelines carefully, complete the Application Form and submit it along with other necessary materials to the Japan Foundation offices in Europe no later than 31 October 2018.
