Open Call for arts and heritage projects for young people's mental health

The Cultural Participation Fund is looking for artistic and/or heritage activities at neighbourhood and district level that help promote the mental health of young people (aged 12 to 27). Do you have a good plan? Then read on!

From 21 November 2022 at 13:00 until 14 December 2022 at 17:00, you can submit a grant application for a project in which artistic and/or heritage activities take place. Your project is aimed at young people aged 12 to 27, for whom participating in culture is currently not a given. The project must involve cooperation between an institution and/or independent professional from the cultural and social domain. You can submit a grant application for an amount between €5,000 and €25,000.

Some points of interest:

Your project starts at the earliest 13 weeks after the Fund has received your complete application and lasts a maximum of one year.

The cultural and social domains work together equally and the activities take place at neighbourhood and/or district level.

The activities increase young people's access to active cultural participation, help promote their mental health, contribute to strengthening their resilience and connection with others and stimulate their personal development.

You submit the application through the digital application system 'My Fund'. To log in and apply, you need an account. Keep in mind that it takes several working days (maximum three working days) before your account is active. So create an account in good time.
