Projects co-financed

The IFPC is a fund which seeks to promote creativity and the arts, supporting the artistic expression and the professionalization of youth in culture and the arts. The Fund supports young artists and their projects which contribute to sustainable development.
 
In a snapshot:
  • The IFPC provides financial and technical support directly to artists by cofounding their projects;
  • The IFPC provides support for the production of artistic and cultural works and public events to promote cultural diversity and artistic expression, particularly for under-represented art forms on the global arts scene;
  • The IFPC promotes projects that advance the role of culture for sustainable development, with priority given to grassroot projects promoting gender equality, international and regional cooperation, peace and social stability.
 
Within this framework the IFPC launches annual calls for projects which are open to individual artists, not for profit and non-governmental organisation, as well as public institutions across the globe.
 
Four calls have been launched and 32 projects have been approved for co-financing. These projects were chosen for their artistic and creative content, their partnership and resource mobilization, and their potential for sustainable impact:
