In line with the aims and objectives of the IFCD, eligible projects must contribute to:

  • the implementation and/or elaboration of policies and strategies that have a direct, structural impact on the creation, production, distribution and access to a diversity of cultural goods and services;
  • strengthening the capacities of  public institutions and civil society organizations to support viable local and regional cultural industries and markets in eligible countries that are Parties to the 2005 Convention.

Eligibility

Public institutions and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) from eligible countries are invited to submit their proposals, as well as international NGOs registered in countries that are Parties to the 2005 Convention. All projects should ultimately contribute to a sustainable creative ecosystem and be aligned with the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda of the United Nations.

In light of the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in the cultural and creative sectors, and the dramatic impact on the livelihoods of artists and cultural professionals globally, this call reinforces  UNESCO’s commitment to support the creative sector, to build back better and to ensure that artists and cultural professionals everywhere can keep on creating.
