The Perform Europe Open Call has officially closed, with an impressive 435 proposals received from all Creative Europe countries. Additionally, over 2200 professionals have registered on the project's matchmaking platform.

We would like to thank all artists, organisations, festivals, residencies, collectives, venues, producers, and all other actors who have formed partnerships across borders and submitted proposals with the aim to reinvent the way we tour performing arts works across borders. The high number of applications proves the need and interest in transforming cross-border touring to become greener, more inclusive and more diverse.

Stay Tuned

The review of applications starts with an eligibility check, followed by the evaluation. If an application does not meet the eligibility criteria, the applicant will be informed within 4 weeks after submission. All eligible applications will automatically be sent for evaluation and will be notified about the final selection by 3 June 2024.

Perform Europe aims to grant 2.1 million Euros to at least 35 partnerships. Selected partnerships will be publicly announced on 1 July 2024, with projects running from 1 July 2024 to 30 November 2025.
