As a response to the pandemic COVID-19, the Youth Board of Cyprus launched the "ReCOVer20" Programme, financing pilot actions or programmes / activities which aim at addressing the effects of the pandemic, at local level, by providing practical support to individuals and groups of people that were affected the most by the pandemic. The Programme finances, among others, actions and initiatives in the field of culture.
The programme targets young people up to 35 years old, youth organisations, youth clubs, informal youth groups and NGOs.
The only available results so far from the implementation of "ReCOVer20" are the ones of the first application round. Specifically, during the first round, the Youth Board received 71 applications in total, out of which 44 were granted. Thirteen (13) applications concern the implementation of cultural activities and actions. One more application proposing a research in the field of culture ("ReSetting the Cyprus Music Stage") was also granted.
The 14 applications, referred to above, that fall in the field of culture were awarded the amount of $51.000.
