The PROCULTURA project (2019-2023) is supporting the cultural and creative economy in the Portuguese Official Language African Countries (PALOP) and in East Timor. It aims to contribute to job creation in income generating activities in the cultural and creative economy in these coutries.

Budget: €19 million

PROCULTURA will award around 8.5 million euros in grants for projects to be carried out in the PALOP and Timor-Leste, mainly in the sectors of music, performing arts and children’s and youth literature. International partnerships will be valued, as a way to realize the regional dimension (PALOP-TL) of the project, enhance access to markets and transfer knowledge and technology.

This action is funded by the European Union, co-financed and managed by Camões IP and co-financed by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation.
