Support for refugee integration

European Programme Creative Europe

On 9 March 2016, the Call for Proposals EACEA/12/2016 “Implementation of the Cross-sectoral strand: Support for refugee integration” has been published by the European Commission in the framework of the Creative Europe Programme.

One of the main objectives of the Creative Europe programme is to foster, safeguard and promote European cultural and linguistic diversity. At a time when Europe is receiving an extraordinary number of refugees, supporting European Union Member States in tackling this situation is a key priority of the EU. In November 2015, the Education, Youth, Culture and Sports Council of Ministers have reaffirmed that intercultural dialogue through culture and the arts plays an important role to integrate refugees. Culture and cinema can bridge gaps and improve mutual understanding between the population of the host country and the refugees.

The general objective of the current EACEA/12/2016 “Implementation of the Cross-sectoral strand: Support for refugee integration” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Creative Europe Programme, is to support cultural, audio-visual and cross sectorial projects aiming at facilitating the integration of refugees in the European environment, enhancing mutual cultural understanding and fostering intercultural and interreligious dialogue, tolerance and respect for other cultures.

The specific objectives of the current EACEA/12/2016 “Implementation of the Cross-sectoral strand: Support for refugee integration” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Creative Europe Programme, are to establish transnational cultural and audiovisual projects that can:

- help refugees socialize and express themselves without necessarily speaking immediately the host country language;

- be learning platforms in a wider sense, fostering respect and understanding for diversity, intercultural and civic competencies, democratic values and citizenship;

- give EU citizens the opportunity to discover, learn from and understand the values and cultures of refugees and - in the process rediscover and enrich their own;

- support the showcasing and co-creation of cultural and/or audiovisual works across Europe;

- offer the possibility of collaboration with organisations in other sectors in order to stimulate a more comprehensive, rapid, effective and long-term response to this global challenge.

 

Eligible applicants to respond to the current EACEA/12/2016 “Implementation of the Cross-sectoral strand: Support for refugee integration” call for proposals, published by the European Commission in the framework of the Creative Europe Programme, are:

- legal entities with experience relevant to the objectives of the call that are active in the cultural and creative sectors as defined in article 2 of the Regulation N° 1295/2013.

- the consortium may also include organisations from other sectors such as the public, educational, healthcare, social domain or similar fields, which must actively participate in the realization of the objectives.
