Perform Europe, a call for producers and presenters

Perform Europe is an EU-funded project which aims to rethink cross-border performing arts presentation in a more inclusive, sustainable and balanced way, in the 40 countries of Creative Europe and the UK.

The project is an 18-month journey, which includes a research phase, launching a digital platform, testing a support scheme, and designing policy recommendations. Since December 2020, Perform Europe has explored and mapped the context in which performing art works have been presented across borders in the past few years.

The research team identified and analysed the current issues and disparities in the European system of performing arts touring and presentation and indicated some solutions for bringing change. Throughout our Perform Europe journey, they will develop policy recommendations to advise the European Institutions and Member States on how to integrate a support scheme for performing arts distribution in the Creative Europe programme 2021-2027.

They also aim at offering policy insights for other policy levels and fields, and for the sector at large. Based on the learning points of our research phase, they have now released the Perform Europe digital platform. This digital space is their platform for helping applicants to network and share best practices of more sustainable and inclusive touring and distribution practices.

Applications for the first step of the Perform Europe call are now open until 7 July 2021 on the Perform Europe digital platform.

The Perform Europe application process is divided in two steps:

1) This is the first step of the application process. The call is detailed below and remains open to application until 7 July 2021. In this first step, all interested producers (organisations, artists, collectives, companies and presenters that have produced an artistic work) and presenters (festivals, venues, and other organisations offering a presenting context) are invited to apply to be part of Perform Europe’s process of collective learning and networking organised by Perform Europe and supported by its digital platform.

Applicants, selected in this step, will be invited to join two events, providing space for mentorship, pitching ideas, and sharing best practices of more sustainable and inclusive touring practices.

2) In the second step, while and after participating in the learning and networking process, applicants selected in step 1 will shape partnerships among each other, co-create touring and distribution proposals and apply for Perform Europe grants. The total budget available is € 1,5 million; grant amounts will range from €10,000 to €100,000. The second call will be published at the end of July only for those selected in the first step (see a more detailed timeline of the Perform Europe application process at the very bottom of this call).
