Perform Europe 2023–2026 cross-border touring

Perform Europe is calling for performing arts project proposals from arts professionals and organisations in the 40 Creative Europe countries. 

The call invites partnerships of minimum three partners from three different Creative Europe countries to propose innovative ideas for touring and presenting work across borders, generating real change with focus on one or both of the Perform Europe priorities:

  • inclusion and diversity
  • fight against climate change. 

Applications by partnerships from and with areas and communities that are currently underrepresented within the performing arts landscape are strongly encouraged.

Perform Europe will grant EUR 2.1 million to at least 35 partnerships. 

There are grants in three categories:

  • 12,000 EUR Small partnership projects 
  • 32,000 EUR Medium partnership projects 
  • 60,000 EUR Large partnership projects.

Who can apply? 

Any organisation and professional working in the performing arts, and legally based in one of the Creative Europe Countries can apply.

Applications are submitted by partnerships. Each application must include at least one performing arts work (excluding live music) to be presented in a minimum of three different Creative Europe countries.

Perform Europe will not cover production costs for new creations: proposals are supposed to include a finished artistic work (finished production or an artistic concept ready to be applied and presented in different contexts).
