The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation invites grant applications under its programme for art research and development. Applications must address projects or ideas under the foundation’s three main strategic aims:
- Cultural Understanding
To help improve people’s perceptions of each other by providing opportunities through culture and between cultures.
- Fulfilling Potential
To assist the most disadvantaged in society to fulfil their potential by building connections and developing opportunities.
To help in the development of a society which benefits from a more sustainable relationship with the natural world and understands the value of its resources.
Not-for -profit organisations based in the UK or Republic of Ireland may apply for funding, and projects must take place in these countries. Projects may involve international partners, or emulate good practice in other countries.
Grants average between £10,000 and £30,000.
There is no closing date.
