Allianz Cultural Foundation
Call for Projects for 2014
The Allianz Cultural Foundation promotes and supports cultural and artistic networking in Europe and the Mediterranean region, addressing primarily exceptionally gifted young academics and artists in Europe. The projects should include, on an equal footing, cooperation partners and partner facilities in at least three European and Mediterranean countries. The focus of the promotion is on exchange and encounter projects as well as discursive events in contemporary art, literature, dance and theatre. Genre and media-spanning ideas which also take the new concepts of cultural education or artistic communication into account are preferred.
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 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.
