Grassroots Projects

Grassroots Projects Grants aim to provide and to democratise access to cultural funding for small cultural organisations, operators and activists in promoting tolerance, non-discrimination, freedom of expression, and democratic processes in the shrinking civic space of Turkey.

These grants are devised as an instrument to reach individuals and organisations that have an impact on local communities and audiences on a grassroots level. Grassroots Projects Grants focus especially on including informal structures in order to implement a broad and flexible range of cultural projects that facilitate dialogue and examine social issues.
