SI Creative Partnerships Programme 2024 (funding available)
2024 Creative Partnerships Programme grants funding to Swedish organisations and their international partners in civil society, culture and the media. The programme supports projects which aim to promote democracy, human rights and freedom of expression.
Creative Partnerships awards funding to projects which:
- aim to strengthen democracy, human rights and/or freedom of expression in one or more of the programme’s target countries.
- aim to strengthen the professional capacity of people who are in a position to bring about change in the organisations or sectors they work in.
- involve the project partners in knowledge exchange, network building and/or the development of innovative methods.
- are sustainable. This means that the methods and results of the projects live on and continue to be used after the project has formally ended.
- are firmly rooted in the partner country and reflect needs which have been identified and formulated locally rather than by the Swedish partner.
- do not have a profit motive.
