Curatorial proposals for the European Pavilion 2024

The European Cultural Foundation is calling for legal entities from all cultural and creative fields in Europe and neighbouring countries to submit an ambitious curatorial proposal that will ensure the visibility, accessibility and positioning of the European Pavilion as a major European cultural event in 2024.

What they are looking for

ECF is looking for curatorial proposals from institutions, organisations, or consortia, in any field of arts and culture, that are eager to explore today’s burning questions in and about Europe through creative production and critical debate. 

Proposals must present a convincing concept for a versatile, multifaceted programme to be implemented between January and December 2024 anywhere in Europe (see list of eligible countries). The primary expectation is that the curatorial programme and its outcomes culminate in one central and outstanding public event for local and European audiences. This event must take place before 30 November 2024. Auxiliary events or activities can be planned throughout the year. 

The European Pavilion 2024 is open to the development of new and experimental formats, which can take the form of art exhibitions, theatre, dance or music performances, public installations, lectures and debates, any type of multidisciplinary cultural festival, as well as online activities. 

What do they offer?

ECF offers a single commissioning grant of up to 500,000 EUR to cover a maximum of 80% of the total budget for the creative development, curation and production costs of the European Pavilion 2024.

The grant will be used at the beneficiary’s discretion to commission cultural producers working in a wide variety of fields of practice in Europe and other parts of the world to contribute to the interdisciplinary programme outlined in the winning proposal.
