Support to Cultural Activities, EU Delegation to Lebanon
Opportunity type : Calls for Proposals
The European Union, through the European Neighbourhood policy, works to achieve greater association and economic integration between the European countries and its neighbouring countries.
Promoting EU-Lebanon cultural cooperation and dialogue between cultures at international, regional, bilateral and local levels is one of the objectives of the EU Lebanon Action plan. The cultural area brings people and civilisations together. Arts, education and other cultural activities provide opportunities for dialogue between people that may otherwise not be so disposed.
In addition culture plays a key role in empowering Civil Society, including grass root organisations and contributes to political, social and economic development
It is in this context that the European Union, through its Delegations, funds cultural activities in its neighbouring countries.
Objectives of the programme and priority issues:
The global objective of this call for proposals is: The promotion of understanding and dialogue between cultures and people.

– Financial Support (up to EUR 40,000) to local civil society organizations, mainly grass root organizations and small cultural operators.
