The EEA and Norway Grants were highlighted at the high-level EU Cultural Heritage Summit in Berlin last week as important contributors to empowering people and mutual understanding.
Promotion of diversity in culture and arts within European cultural heritage
As a result of centuries of exchange and migratory flows, Europeans share a rich cultural heritage. Promoting cultural diversity is essential for strengthening democratic values in Europe and to contribute to economic and social cohesion.
Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway support programmes promoting the diversity in culture and arts in ten beneficiary countries. These programmes aim to encourage intercultural dialogue and diversity in the arts.
Read about the programme in each country to find out what activities are funded, how to apply, or how to get involved as a partner.
Funding is available for entities registered in the ten beneficiary countries. These may include civic associations, non-profit organisations and other public and private institutions active in the cultural field.
The Arts Council Norway is involved as a donor programme partner in several programmes in this field and can assist Norwegian entities who wish to get involved. Project partnerships between entities in the donor and beneficiary countries are also encouraged.
