Culture of Solidarity Fund
The Culture of Solidarity Fund sought to support cultural initiatives that reinforce European solidarity in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis.
The spread of COVID-19 across Europe has weakened European unity and solidarity as national governments have stepped forward to deal with the pandemic. The fund created by the European Cultural Foundation seeks to try and reverse this, and capture and encourage the European culture of solidarity by supporting cultural initiatives, big and small that expand the notion of Europe as an open and shared public space for everybody.
The European Cultural Foundation’s Director, André Wilkens outlined his thoughts behind the call, and the need for a new culture of solidarity in his recent blog; “Definitely Maybe: Europe’s moment of solidarity“.
