Open call for travel grants


The Roberto Cimetta Fund is launching the second 2015 open call for travel grants from 1st to 30th April 2015. Artists and cultural operators living and working in the Euro-Arab geographical region can apply in Arabic, English or French. Priority is given to mobility from the South and East of these regions.

The open call concerns two separate mobility fundsthe RCF/Valletta 2018 Fund,  and the RCF/Conseil Général Bouches-du-Rhône Fund. This call is therefore open for travel related to specific criteria of Valletta 2018 (indicated on RCF’s website), as well as travel from or to the Bouches-du-Rhône and from the cooperation zones of this county (indicated on  RCF's website).


The results will be announced on:

1st July 2015 (Deadline for receiving applications: 30/04/2015)

The online questionnaire will become active on 1st April. We invite you to visit our website as from 1st April 2015.


The following general criteria apply to the fund:

i.         The aim of the travel must show potential for a constructive and long-term impact on the arts sector in a concrete, localised context in the Euro-Arab geographical region;

ii.         This means that travel must contribute to the applicant’s professional development, which in turn can be shared in a “networking” fashion that will benefit connecting artists and operators in the applicant’s own country or region so as to maintain, renew and develop contemporary arts practise;

iii.         Travel can take place as soon as the call opens but in this case the applicant runs the risk of paying for travel without guarantee of the success of the application;

iv.         No nationality or age criteria apply to the fund; however the applicant must live or work in the Euro-Arab geographical region;

v.         The applicant’s profession must be one of the following; administrator in the cultural field, artist, creator, cultural organiser, performer, project leader in the cultural field, or teacher;

vi.         The call aims to give financial support to applicants who do not have the financial resources to engage in the mobility being funded;

vii.         Individuals rather than organisations must make applications. Only three members of a group can apply separately for a grant concerning the same project;

viii.         The fund will only be granted to any one individual three times in total;

ix.         Applicants must choose the cheapest form of transport and can only apply for one international return travel ticket and visa costs per application and per session;

x.         Local transport, per diems and accommodation costs are not covered by the fund.

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.
