The European Platforms’ scheme is funded by the Creative Europe programme. It offers action grants to organisations promoting European creators and artists, especially emerging talent, willing to engage at a European and transnational level. These organizations come together within a platform to showcase their common artistic vision and to help their members improve their audience development techniques.
The objectives are: promotion of the mobility of creators and artists; promotion of emerging talent from other European countries; stimulating a genuine Europe-wide programming of cultural and artistic activities; contribution to audience development; and providing visibility to Europe’s values and different cultures.
In total, 15 platforms are currently supported by the action. For more information, please read the brochure.
