Deadline for applications: ongoing
STEP Beyond Travel grants fund up-and-coming artists and cultural workers (giving priority to individuals up to 35 years and/or in the first 10 years of their career) to travel between EU and countries bordering the EU to explore, network and set up new collaborations.
Eligible travellers should present a well-prepared travel itinerary and have a clear plan of activities, with at least one committed partner or host in the destination country. Funded travel should represent a starting point for continued collaboration and the resulting projects should have some impact on the local/regional arts and culture scene and/or policy-making.
NB Please note that starting 1 September 2015, the application deadline will be 60 days prior to departure, which affects travels starting in October as well. If you are travelling in October, please make sure to submit your application at the latest in August.
