Get a Spanish cultural boost
Donostia / San Sebastián in Spain, one of the two European capitals of Culture 2016, has started an innovative programme of subsidies for cultural initiatives, based on Umeå2014’s experience of the Cultural Boost. Their ”Waves of Energy” grants are open to all European citizens and non profit organizations.
The initiative will subsidise cultural projects throughout 2015 and 2016 and a citizen´s committee will decide on the projects that will get the grants. The largest grants, up to 20.160 euros, are open for application by any European Union inhabitant. More information on the Waves of Energy programme can be found at:
Umeå2014’s ”Cultural Boost” was an opportunity for associations and independent actors to apply for a grant of up to SEK 20 014 to organize projects and events ahead of and during the European Capital of Culture year in Umeå.
