Western Balkans Youth Cultural Fund

The Western Balkans Youth Cultural Fund is a new multi-year project, designed for cultural practitioners and youth-oriented CSOs from the field of culture. The project aims to support youth cultural activism and creative solutions for pressing social and political issues in the Western Balkans. It will provide new opportunities for young individuals within the cultural and creative sectors in the Western Balkans and reinforce cultural cooperation within the region.

Cultural practitioners can apply for grants of up to 3,000 EUR, while CSOs can apply for grants of up to 6,000 EUR. More information about the application process is available on RYCO’s website www.rycowb.org. In addition to the grants, the project will support Peace Champion awards to cultural practitioners who have significantly contributed to peacebuilding, to celebrate their achievements, inspire others to engage in peacebuilding activities and provide a platform for showcasing successful peacebuilding initiatives.

The Western Balkans Youth Cultural Fund project lasts until September 2026. It will have up to ten Open Calls over four years. The project is funded by the German Federal Foreign Office and implemented by RYCO.
