Through this grants scheme, we fund emerging artists and cultural workers to explore and to exchange views, skills and inspiration. We have been supporting all kinds of cross-border creativity - including music, visual art, theatre, dance, film, documentary, multimedia, design, photography, fashion and cultural capacity building.
STEP Beyond Travel Grants are designed for up-and-coming artists and cultural workers to travel between EU and EFTA (European Free Trade Association), and countries bordering the EU. Priority is given to individuals who are under 35 years old and/or who are in the first 10 years of their career. The STEP Beyond funding scheme emerged from previous mobility grant programmes such as Erasmus and APEXchanges.
You can check eligibility and submit your application on ECF Labs, in the Lab dedicated to Step Beyond. When you apply, you become part of the ECF Labs community, which is a chance to connect with other artists and cultural workers from across Europe and beyond.
