International Fund for Cultural Diversity (IFCD) | 4th Call - CLOSED

The International Fund for Cultural Diversity (IFCD) launches a call for funding requests on 21 March 2013 that aim to foster the emergence of a dynamic cultural sector at the national and/or local level in developing countries.

Since 2010, the IFCD is providing USD 4 million in project funding to government authorities, public institutions and NGOs in 40 countries. These projects cover a wide range of areas, from the development and implementation of cultural policies, to capacity-building of cultural entrepreneurs, mapping of cultural industries and the creation of new cultural industry business models.

The IFCD, the fund established by the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions, invests in creativity and supports projects that spark transformational change in developing countries.
