New calls to support cultural heritage projects and events!

Nov 24, 2021

Two new calls to support the European Heritage label projects and the European Heritage Days events have just been launched by the Council of Europe and the European Commission. They offer cultural practitioners the opportunity to amplify European Heritage Days related actions and to foster innovative cultural projects with a strong European and transnational dimension.

The European Heritage Label, a recognition awarded by the European Union to buildings, documents, museums, archives or events with a unique European character is an initiative to strengthen the European citizens’ sense of belonging to the Union. The call targets European Heritage Label sites and invites them to carry out new cultural projects with a transnational dimension or reflect on European values, history and shared heritage. The main goal is to broaden the European dimension of these projects and their involvement in the European Heritage Days.

Through this call, three short term projects will be provided up to €14,500 to foster digital transformation, sustainable cultural tourism, or promote capacity building of the sites.

The deadline for submission of project proposals is Monday 17 January 2022.

How to perpetuate the memory of the people who became victims of political repression? Start by telling their story! After four editions, the stories of the European Heritage days have become a key activity of the European Heritage Days event. The European Union and National Coordinators of the European Heritage Days have set up a call for European Heritage Days stories. The aim is to highlight stories behind these events, and to give a voice to the passionate individuals, organisations and associations who wish to share their story.

The grants, up to €10,000, will be awarded to applicants that have hosted or organised at least one European Heritage Days event during one of the past four seasons and plan to host an event during 2022.

The deadline for submission of project proposals is Monday 17 January 2022.
