Cultural Cooperation Grants

The UCLG Committee on Culture announces a call for proposals based on the Agenda 21 for culture, aimed at countries in Africa, Ibero-America and the Mediterranean, for cities and local governments which are direct or indirect members of United Cities and Local Governments - UCLG. The involvement in the project by a non-profit organisation or an educational institution in the city or country concerned is highly recommended and will be an advantage.

The projects should be based on the Agenda 21 for culture, the first document which links culture with sustainable development, diversity, interculturalism and local governance, that is the UCLG's reference document for local cultural policies. They shall come under at least one of these goals:

  • Goal 1: Local cultural governance. Improving municipal capacities on local cultural policies and governance.
  • Goal 2: Education, training and capacity building. Enhancing competencies for municipal cultural management and international cultural cooperation.
  • Goal 3: International cultural cooperation projects in the arts and heritage.
  • The deadline for projects to be submitted is 22 June 2010.
