Co-financing is not required, but allowed. The Perform Europe grant can cover 100% of the costs or less.

STEP 2 Partnership

Your partnership must have at least three partners (lead partner included) based in three different Creative Europe countries. This means the country the partner is legally based in, not their nationality. Each partner has to be registered with an account on the Perform Europe website.

STEP 3 Partnership proposal

- What are you hoping to achieve with communication? This can include raising awareness, change of attitude, change of behaviour, introducing new art forms and ideas, stimulating critical thinking.

STEP 4 Artistic work

You can select multiple options. In that case, rank the disciplines in order of their relevance to your work(s).
