The Roberto Cimetta Fund awards travel grants to artists and cultural managers who wish to travel in order to develop contemporary artistic cooperation projects in the Euro-Mediterranean region, and in particular throughout the Arab world.
The grants are available for artists / cultural workers who wish to prepare a project; take part in a residency; take part in a meeting of artists and professionals with the aim of networking or encouraging links between cultural, artistic and development actors in the Mediterranean; undertake artistic training (masterclasses, workshops, etcetera) or professional training (cultural policy, cultural management) either as a trainee or as a teacher; take part in debates, conferences and seminars. The proposed trip must also 'contribute to cultural development at local level in South or East Mediterranean countries. The candidate must develop local initiatives or policies on his/her return that contribute to the cultural dynamism of his or her own country or region. They must be committed to transmitting the benefits of their experience abroad to the other artists and professionals in their region in a networking fashion.'
The Fund invities applications through a series of flexibly programmed sessions spread throughout the year.
