The overall objective of the call for proposals is to contribute to the creation of a political, regulatory, institutional and economic environment conducive to the strengthening of the cultural sectors and their actors as a vector for sustainable economic, social and human development.
The call targets governance at regional, national and local level focusing on aspects related to the role, management, structure, operating modes and representativeness of professional associations and groups, networks of cultural actors and civil society organisations active in the area of culture and its sectors.
The organisation of cultural or artistic activities must not be the main objective of proposed actions. Nevertheless, some such activities may be included provided that they constitute a minor part of the action and contribute to the achievement of the specific objectives mentioned above.
The call for proposals is divided into two lots – Lot 1: 'Investing in People' (€7million)and Lot 2: Eastern Partnership Culture Programme (€8.4 million) – with the same overall objective but some different specific objectives and different geographic dimensions.
The deadline for the submission of Concept Notes for the call is 19 November 2010. (ENPI Info Centre)
