Western Balkans – This October has been truly inspiring for the RYCO team. While working on various activities and projects simultaneously, the regional team successfully conducted a series of informational sessions in different cities about our recent open call – ‘The Western Balkans Youth Cultural Fund’
These sessions were attended by a diverse group of local and international high-level officials, RYCO representatives, artists, cultural practitioners, youth, and representatives from cultural civil society organizations, as well as local cultural focal points. They actively engaged in these informative sessions. In line with RYCO’s primary thematic areas of peacebuilding and reconciliation, participants received a step-by-step overview of the funding program application process through the grant scheme.
As our next step, we will be organizing workshops for potential applicants and grantees, offering them a deeper understanding of the program and the application procedure.
We want to remind everyone that the application period for The Western Balkans Youth Cultural Fund Open Call is open until November 12th
