Following the 2014 call, 9 new creative and artistic projects were approved under the International Fund for the Promotion of Culture.  Some 700 project proposals were received across all regions in response to the second call for proposals of the International Fund for the Promotion of Culture in 2014.  The selected projects were chosen on the basis of artistic and creative content, their partner and resource mobilization, and their potential for sustainable impact.
