(25 May 2018) – The European Commission has announced the 29 cultural projects selected for funding following a dedicated call for proposals launched on the occasion of the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage.
A total budget of €5 million will be allocated to the projects under the Creative Europe programme, the main EU programme supporting cultural and creative sectors.
The 29 projects selected out of 77 applications cover a broad range of innovative collaborations between organisations from at least three Member States.
The projects chosen vary, from the production of folk costumes from different regions using traditional skills, to the exploration of the Baroque era through music. Some are long-term educational projects designed to help people learn about monuments and archaeological sites.
