Nineteen projects run by organisations from across the Southern Mediterranean region have been selected to receive funding under SouthMed CV, one of the three grant projects co-funded by the EU within the framework of the Med Culture regional programme.
The projects cover a wide range of cultural expressions, including music, dance, literature, cinema, theatre, photography and visual arts. Themes such as cultural heritage, education, youth and the specific problems facing different cities are also at the heart of a number of projects.
SouthMed CV aims to bring culture from the margins to the center of the public sphere in the Southern Mediterranean. The second call for project proposals is foreseen to be launched in August 2016
Med Culture is an EU-funded regional programme with the aim of sustaining the creation of institutional and social environments propitious to culture as a vector for freedom of expression and sustainable development. This should be accomplished by reinforcing the capacities of the public and private cultural sectors as vectors for democratisation, and economic and social development for societies in the Southern Mediterranean.
Med Culture is part of the regional programme “Media and culture for development in the Southern Mediterranean” which 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 (Med Media) and one capacity development mechanism on culture (Med Culture). (EU Neighbourhood Info)
