European Cultural Foundation

Programmes and Grants

ECF is an independent non-profit organisation that promotes cultural co-operation in Europe. It aims to contribute to an open and democratic Europe which respects human and cultural diversity and it also seeks to embed culture in the European agenda.

Three priorities shape our grants and programme activities. Please read more about the priority relevant to your field of interest before proceeding:

Encouraging intercultural dialogue means Europe's many and diverse cultures interacting with one another. It is about making a space for people from different cultural communities to encounter one another, create and innovate.

Stimulating participation through the arts means involving people in making art, and so encouraging them to feel confident, included and active in society. It is about personal transformation and social change.

Strengthening the cultural sector means developing responsive policy frameworks so that cultural activity and cooperation can flourish. It means invigorating the participative approach to cultural policy development.

We also now have a grants line for innovative pan-European activities.

Individuals can apply for grants under our Mobility Scheme, in Enlargement of Minds.

Check the deadlines on the web site!

Concrete results


We do not support school and university exchanges or art therapy. Festivals will only be supported in exceptional circumstances where content fits closely with the ECF’s priority themes. International projects will only be considered if there is a strong European component. Incomplete applications will not be considered.


ECF's grants budget is modest but our aim is to support a wide range of projects, from small-scale grassroots initiatives to higher profile projects with a wide-reaching impact in Europe. Grants awarded by ECF would not usually exceed Euro 40 000 and priority is given to projects that have a balanced range of sources of income, including other partners for funding.

Costs supported by project grants include: international, national and local travel (cheapest economy fare tickets available), visa, meetings, living costs (accommodation and meals for participants), fees for artists, experts, translators or interpreters, professional materials and rental of space and equipment needed for the project. Living costs or “per diems” should be calculated with close consideration of regional economic standards. Other costs can only be included with special prior agreement.


Institutional costs for running the organisation (rent of the organisation’s premises, permanent staff costs, electricity, etc) are not accepted.

ECF cannot fund the total budget of any project.

Call for proposals -  net art commissions

Starting in 2002, Impakt is opening up its own Webgallery: Impakt Online. Three

times a year Impakt is asking media artists from around the world to submit a

project proposal for one of the selected themes. Two projects will be selected

for each theme.

The projects that will be selected must use the Internet‚s special

characteristics i.e. projects which exist thanks to the interactive, non-

hierarchical complexity of the Internet environment, and only really come into

their own in this online space.

The first theme is titled ŒThe Art of Narrative‚. The multiform narrative is

not a new phenomenon. However the computer made it possible to combine text,

image and sound in one screen, thereby creating multiple stories at the same

time. The open structure of the internet encouraged the active involvement of

the reader even more. At first the storyteller invited the reader to make

certain choices, but soon the reader was also asked to contribute in the story.

The Art of Narrative changed from a pre-mapped storyboard to a loose connection

of user contributions that move the storyline in different directions. Suspense

arises from both observing and participating in these stories. This process, in

which the author merely acts as a host offering a space for dramatic action,

could lead to a redefinition of narrativity and story.

Impakt hopes to support this process by giving artists a chance to use the

Impakt Online section as a space to explore the effects of text, image and

sound on multiple narration.

Terms and Conditions:

Acceptance of proposals: January 14 till 24, 2003

Final Selection: February 14, 2003

Launch: March, 2003

Proposals must to be written in English. They should include a project

description: description of content and technical implementation, including a

time line and the relation to the theme; artist[s] biography, with a short CV

and documentation on your previous projects.

Impakt will provide webhosting for the project for 1 year, and pay a fee to the

accepted artist[s] of • 1000.
