Call for applications: consultants sought for study on minority cultural rights
April 22, 2016
The EU-funded Drama, Diversity and Development programme (DDD)launched a call for applications to hire qualified consultants or researchers to carry out a feasibility study on “how to defend minority cultural rights by using local laws in the Southern Mediterranean region?”
The deadline for applications is 29 May 2016.
The three-year Drama, Diversity and Development project aims to use local artists to promote diversity through theatre across the region, engaging all levels of society, including post performance debates between actors and public aiming to trigger dialogue about multiplicity, difference, discrimination, equality and justice.
As part of its activities, the project also plans to organise training events, commission a regional film, and open further calls for feasibility studies on remedies for cultural rights abuses, as well as advocacy projects on abuses of and increased respect for cultural rights.
Media and culture for development in the Southern Mediterranean has been allocated a total budget of €17 million over a four-year period, of which €9 million is for the award of grants on a co-financing basis, and €8 million for one capacity-development mechanism on media (MedMedia) and one capacity development mechanism on culture (MedCulture).
