IDB Cultural Center Grants 2012: Call for Proposals

The Cultural Center of the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) has launched a call for proposals from arts and cultural institutions to fund small-scale cultural development projects in Latin America and the Caribbean through its grant program.

Applications must be submitted before January 31, 2012 to the IDB offices in the 26 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. For information on the call for proposals, visit “2012 IDB Cultural Development Grant Program”.

The Cultural Development Grant Program was created in 1994 to promote development of projects that promote local knowledge and traditions, revive cultural heritage and values, support artistic excellence, and contribute toward community development through economic and social activities in innovative and sustainable ways.

The projects are evaluated for their viability, educational scope, effective use of resources, ability to mobilize additional financial resources and the long-term impact on the community.

The IDB may approve from $3,000 to $7,000 per project. Local organizations are responsible for providing the remainder of the resources and supporting the project on a sustainable basis.

ALBA Cultural Research Scholarships 2011-2012 – Call for applications

I was just perusing Professor Norman Girvan’s blog (a favourite pastime of mine) and came across this call for applications from ALBA’s Cultural Fund.

ALBA is the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of our America. Three of its eight member states (Antigua & Barbuda, Dominica and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines) are CARICOM states. Its Cultural Fund is offering eight (8) scholarships each with a budget of $5,000  under its “Programme of Research Over Latin America and the Caribbean Cultures”.  The current theme is “Construction Processes of Inclusive Societies, Culturally Diverse and Environmentally Responsible in Latin America and the Caribbean”.
