Support for refugee integration
Description of call
"Support for refugee integration"

The general objective of this call for proposals is to support cultural, audio-visual and crosssectorial projects aiming at facilitating the integration of refugees in the European environment, enhancing mutual cultural understanding and fostering intercultural and interreligious dialogue, tolerance and respect for other cultures. The specific objectives of this call are to establish transnational cultural and audiovisual projects that can:

  • help refugees socialise and express themselves without necessarily speaking immediately the host country language.
  • be learning platforms in a wider sense, fostering respect and understanding for diversity, intercultural and civic competencies, democratic values and citizenship. 
  • give EU citizens the opportunity to discover, learn from and understand the values and cultures of refugees and - in the process rediscover and enrich their own. 
  • support the showcasing and co-creation of cultural and/or audiovisual works across Europe. 
  • offer the possibility of collaboration with organisations in other sectors in order to stimulate a more comprehensive, rapid, effective and long-term response to this global challenge.
