OPEN CALL to participate in ECF's 2014 Idea Camp

deadline: 15 july 2014


We invite you to submit an innovative, daring 
idea for cross-sectoral collaboration that 
engages Europeans in re-defining and shaping 
"public space".

From the applications we receive, we will choose 
the 50 most viable and innovative ideas. These 
will be represented by the successful applicants 
at ECF's first annual Idea Camp, co-hosted 
by <http://www.lestetesdelart.fr/>Les Têtes de 
l'Art. The Idea Camp will take place 
in Marseilles between 23 and 25 October 2014 
(arrival in Marseilles on 22 October). ECF will 
cover all the travel and accommodation costs 
associated with the event for a maximum of one 
representative for each idea.

The Idea Camp will provide a safe and 
inspirational space for the cross-pollination of 
ideas, allowing projects and partnerships to 
emerge. The camp will be both a meeting place and 
a working place, fuelled by workshops around 
topics and methodologies that will help the 
selected participants to:
- Investigate and further develop their ideas
- Exchange knowledge and find new collaborations
- Inspire and connect with other practitioners 
from different sectors who are working with 
culture and communities
- Explore and challenge new democratic alternatives.

25 Research and Development grants
Following the Idea Camp, participants will be 
invited to submit a concrete plan for further 
research or investigation of their ideas. A total 
of 25 proposals will be selected and consequently 
rewarded with an R&D grant up to a maximum ¤ 
10.000,-. The grant will enable the research and 
development of, for example, business plans, 
concrete project proposals, prototypes, research 
papers, media reportages etc.
