The Roberto Cimetta Fund is launching an open call for travel grants from 1st to 31st January 2012 in the framework of two partnerships with Guimarães 2012 European Capital of Culture and with Marseille-Provence, European Capital of Culture 2013.
The RCF/Guimarães 2012 fund is open to artists and cultural operators in all artistic disciplines from the Euro-Mediterranean-Arab region whose travel project will take place between Guimarães and the Euro-Mediterranean-Arab region and/or in relation to a project linked to Guimarães 2012. Priority will be given to projects in music, performing arts, cinema, visual arts, design and architecture, preferably in the framework of a residency.
The RCF/Marseille-Provence 2013 fund is open to artists and cultural operators from the Euro-Mediterranean-Arab region whose travel project will take place from a country of the South and East coasts of the Mediterranean to another country of that same zone or from a country of the South and East coasts of the Mediterranean to Europe, preferably other than France. Only in exceptional cases will mobility from a European country to a country of the South or East coasts be considered; the same applies for mobility linked to countries of the Arabian Gulf. The aim of the trip needs to be linked to the Marseille Provence 2013 project and/or the area of Marseille Provence 2013 (which extends from Arles to La Ciotat through the Pays d’Aix).
