The Delegation of the European Union to Lebanon is seeking proposals for the organisation of cultural activities in Lebanon in the framework of the European Neighbourhood and Partnership Instrument (ENPI), for a budget of €100,000, and with the aim of promoting inter-cultural understanding through any artistic or cultural activity.  The call reference is EuropeAid/131643/L/ACT/LB.
The objectives of the programme of cultural activities under this call are:

Actions may cover:
·         Activities and events (music, dance, singing, theatre including puppets, etc.), exhibitions (sculpture, painting, photos, etc.), competitions, workshops, projects via new media (Internet, video, etc.) aimed at promoting inter cultural exchange and dialogue in particular between youths from different nationalities and Lebanese communities.
