For the first time, a Call for Projects is being held within the framework of the Flemish Japanese cultural cooperation agreement. Artists or cultural organizations from Flanders that set up a collaboration in Japan or team up with a Japanese partner can apply for financial support for projects, partnerships and/or performances.
This call for projects aims to stimulate and support collaboration projects in the cultural scene at large (the arts, heritage and social-cultural activities). It especially focuses on bottom-up projects that contribute to the bilateral cultural cooperation between Flanders and Japan in a sustainable fashion.
The projects must either be developed by one Flemish partner and one partner in Japan or one Flemish partner who can prove that his/her project has sufficient Japanese content. This Call is especially, but not exclusively, meant for projects that are realized in Japan. The projects need to be executed before October 31, 2020.
The financial support for the projects that are withheld is limited to a maximum of 15,000 euros. The funding from this call for projects cannot exceed 50% of the total budget that is necessary to realize the project.
The application must be submitted by May 26, 2019 at the latest. The projects can start on July 1, 2019 at the earliest.
The criteria and modalities are described in the Call for Projects (outline). Use the Application Form for the subsidy application.
