Allianz Kulturstiftung supports European educational and cultural projects
Deadline: March 31, 2013
Application fee: none
In keeping with its main objective, the Allianz Kulturstiftung supports broadly conceived educational and cultural projects, which benefit the European integration process and encourage the development of a European identity. An important target group for the foundation’s work is the new generation of scholars and artists for whom the foundation has developed a series of exchange and encounter-related projects.
The Allianz Cultural Foundation addresses primarily exceptionally gifted young academics and artists in Europe. In particular, we support cooperative projects with involved partners from at least three countries. In addition to the required artistic, academic or respectively educational quality, the project application has to point out, that the participating project partners share the financial and thematic responsibility and cooperate at eye level. Special attention is paid to projects, which enable long-term networks between the involved artists and project partners. Hence the Allianz Cultural Foundation only supports projects but no institutions. The Allianz Cultural Foundation focuses on particular regions within Europe. Aside from the countries of Central and South-eastern Europe the focal point of the next years lies on the Mediterranean area.
The criteria for funding focus on contemporary concepts of every genre and media which prove new ideas in the arts, culture and education. The projects may also be workshops, whereas the active knowledge transfer and the exchange of experiences between the participants are valued just as the result itself. Furthermore, sponsored projects should on the long run appeal to a larger audience than only professionals.
Project applications – the most important at a glance
Applications for projects in 2014 have to be handed in at the Allianz Cultural Foundation on March 31, 2013, at the latest. Please send your applications via email as well as via mail. The application should not include more than five pages. In your budget planning (part of the application), you should clearly indicate what concrete subtotal you apply for, and for what purposes. Furthermore we would kindly like to ask you to fill out the "project sheet" (max. 2 pages) which you can find on top of this page. As a matter of principle, the Allianz Kulturstiftung only co-finances projects, and never assumes full financing.
