RCF launches a Fund to support strengthening and sustainability of organisations and projects


In the context of international mobility and exchange of artists and cultural operators, the Roberto Cimetta Fund is launching a funding line to support strengthening and sustainability of organisations and projects. This funding line aims to promote cultural and artistic initiatives lead by Arab artists and cultural operators developing local projects (venues, networks, platforms). We hope through this fund to create a leverage effect that could contribute modestly to rebalancing forces between Arab and European components in the exchange, as well as strengthening and sustaining cultural exchange between Arab regions. The grants provided will not exceed 3000€ and can be considered as co-funding depending on the projects selected. Only artists and cultural operators from the Arab world can apply to this fund. The experts and Board members of the Roberto Cimetta Fund will monitor the selected projects during their implementation. For more information go to the Support Programme section of this website.

New UN resolution on Culture and Development


The UN General Assembly adopted by consensus on 12 December 2013 a third resolution on Culture and Development. Building on the recognition of the role of culture for development acknowledged in the previous resolutions, this new resolution represents an important breakthrough on the development agenda as it explicitly recognizes the direct linkages between culture and the 3 pillars of sustainable development (economic, social and environmental) as well as peace and security.
