Perform Europe is our joint EU-funded project which aims to rethink cross-border performing arts presentation in a more inclusive, sustainable and balanced way, in the 40 countries of Creative Europe and the UK. The project is an 18-month journey, which includes a research phase, launching a digital platform and a call for producers and presenters (see below), testing a support scheme, and designing policy recommendations.

We have now released the Perform Europe digital platform – a digital space for helping applicants to network and share best practices of more sustainable and inclusive touring and distribution practices. And the first step of the Perform Europe call is now open for application until 7 July 2021 on the Perform Europe digital platform. 

In this first step, all interested producers (organisations, artists, collectives, companies and presenters that have produced an artistic work) and presenters (festivals, venues, and other organisations offering a presenting context) based in Creative Europe countries and in the UK are invited to apply to be part of Perform Europe’s process of collective learning and networking organised by Perform Europe and supported by its digital platform – and to possibly take part in testing a support scheme.

Candidates selected in this first step can shape partnerships among each other, co-create innovative touring and distribution proposals and apply for funding ranging from €10,000 to €100,000.
