The Franco-German Youth Office (FGYO) and its partners from the cultural and artistic domain support young professional artists. Our main concern is to foster international collaboration of artists from France, Germany and third countries.
By providing an funding for artistic projects we aim to lower entry barriers into the cultural sector and art markets of France and Germany. We also hope to give young professional artists and future art-school graduates the opportunity to travel to France or Germany as a chance to forge personal contacts and build longstanding relationships with curators, musicians, actors, dancers and other professionnals from the partner countries.
The art projects supported by the FGYO must be conceived in such a way that they serve the further artistic education or professional practice of the youg participants. It is therefore possible to receive project funding for international workshops and seminars. Specific examples of funded art projects would be the joint rehearsal of artists from France, Germany and a third country, joint workshops, etc.
The project funding comprises allowances for travel, accommodation and program expenses. Further grants are available to provide for linguistic preparation. Funding can be provided for a maximum of 25 participants per country and accompanying persons.
The project-based collaboration of young artists from France, Germany and third countries and the related intercultural exchange provide for much potential inspiration.
Participation in an institutionally funded project can be a huge advantage for future artistic aspirations of the young participants.
Use this unique chance to forge new contacts and build longstanding relationships with artists and representatives from the cultural sector of the partner countries. Both in France and Germany, culture and the arts are important priorities.
To apply for our funding for artistic projects, send us your application with a detailed project description.
For art projects conducted in Germany, the German partner organization hands in the application and for projects that will be held in France the French partner organization is responsible for applying.
If you are looking for project funding to support your Franco-German or trilateral art project, the FGYO’s art grant should be of interest to you.
The Franco-German Youth Office (FGYO) is an international organization working for Franco-German cooperation, which has enabled nearly 9 million young people from France and Germany to participate in 320,000 exchange programs since 1963.
