Cultural Emergency Response

Type of project:  An emergency grant mechanism that provides quick and flexible support in immediate response to disaster or conflict for the rescue, stabilization or evacuation of heritage under threat to prevent further damage. the action responds to an acute threat to the affected heritage, which means that without immediate intervention there is a high risk of loss. We are only able to support actions geared towards stabilizing the affected heritage and preventing further damage. Examples of such actions include damage assessment missions, basic repairs, stabilization efforts, evacuations, salvage missions and emergency documentation

Location: Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, and Eastern Europe. The list of countries is predetermined by the Development Assistance Committee (DAC).

Eligibility: Heritage and cultural practitioners who live and work in our eligible countries may apply. the individuals and/or organisation coordinating and implementing the rescue effort must be based in the region they are applying from, and projects need to respect local contexts, priorities and traditions

Grant size: €15,000 to €35,000
