“Drama, Diversity and Development” project (DDD) is seeking to fund outstanding street theatre projects focusing on ethnic, religious and linguistic minorities (including refugees).

Each project should aim to create profound and vibrant impact whilst also strengthening the capacity of its creators and team. Moreover, projects will need to durably impact organizations and activists in the art and minority sectors by fostering collaborations and networking and improving local capacities.

In the framework of the European Union (EU) funded regional programme “Med Culture”, Minority Rights Group International, in partnership with the Prince Claus Fund for Culture and Development, the Civic Forum Institute Palestine, and Andalus Institute for Tolerance and Anti-Violence Studies, is currently seeking proposals from artist groups, civil society organizations and companies for the street theatre section of the “Drama, Diversity and Development” project (DDD).

Creativity is a powerful medium for expressing diverse realities and instigating positive social change. MRG encourages street theatre as a valuable channel of expression for minority rights as well as a tool to encourage dialogue and reflection in communities and society at large.

Selected projects, which will last 10 months, will receive funding from €35,000 up to €85,000 to cover up to 75% of their budget. The remaining 25% will need to be raised by the applicant as match funding.

This program will be implemented in the Southern Mediterranean Region. Please see a possible indication of some relevant minorities per country in the guidelines.

Deadline: 4th May 2015, 21:00 (GTM)
