What did this funding support?

In November 2015, the Education, Youth, Culture and Sports Council of Ministers reaffirmed that intercultural dialogue through culture and the arts plays an important role in the integration of refugees so the European Commission revised its work programme for 2016 to include specific measures, such as this funding opportunity, in order to support the integration of refugees.

The general objective of this funding opportunity was to support cultural, audiovisual and cross-sector projects that aim to facilitate the integration of refugees into Europe. These projects  enhance mutual cultural understanding and foster intercultural and interreligious dialogue, tolerance and respect for other cultures.

Three UK-led projects have been supported to support refugee integration.

Please note, this was a one-off call and the funding opportunity is no longer available.
