Académie des beaux-arts European Award 2023
Applications for the 2023 edition are open !
I was sent this press release so i'm assuming the UK is included?
The last few years have seen significant change in the cultural and creative industries. This has been caused not only by the outbreak of COVID-19, and the rapid conversion to digital technologies, but also by the powerful impact of international social movements. Arts and cultural organisations are questioning their role within our societies, seeking new ways of engaging with audiences, and responding to the challenges of our times.
Open to all non-profit European cultural organisations, the European Award encourages new forms of audience engagement and participation in arts and culture, supporting innovative projects, across all art forms, that can be shared, replicated and scaled across Europe. Working against all social, economic and geographic barriers, the Award encourages access to arts and culture for everyone, and champions new dialogues between the arts and audiences.
3 Awards of €50,000 each and 1 Audience Choice Award of €10,000 will be given to support and stimulate best practices in audience engagement, participation and access to arts and culture across Europe ! The Award Ceremony will take place during the event “Arts & Audiences Now!”, the international event about audience engagement dedicated to professionals.
Applicants are invited to apply to one of the 3 categories based on the scale of the organisation’s expenditure in 2022.
