The Creation/Circulation programme

It supports co-productions at all stages: creation, production and touring. Each project must involve at least three artistic partners (including at least two companies) from three governments in French-speaking countries (member or observer countries of the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie), on at least three continents. It must also provide for a commitment and programming of the creation on at least four dates during the year of application and the following year in the case of creation, and/or provide for a commitment or programming of the creation on at least ten dates during the year of application and/or the following year in the case of circulation. 

The third partner may be an artistic designer (author, lighting designer, costume designer, set designer, music designer, etc.) or a producer (festival, venue, etc.) who is artistically involved in the process from its inception. 

The grant awarded will constitute an additional contribution of no more than 30% of the overall budget for creation, and 50% for circulation.

The Exploration/Research programme

It supports an exploration or research phase with a view to artistic encounters that could lead to a co-production. The project must be submitted by three partners: individual artists or professionals, or members of a structure, or non-profit organisations or associations. The initiative may be taken by a single partner.

However, prospective participants must come from three governments in French-speaking countries (member or observer countries of the Organisation internationale de la Francophonie), on at least two continents.

The following may be considered partners: artistic designers (authors, lighting designers, costume designers, set designers, musicians, etc.); producers (festivals, venues, etc.) who are artistically involved in the process from its conception.   The maximum grant will be €5,000. 

Formulaire de candidature au programme Exploration / Recherche 

Applications must be submitted before 22 April 2024, the closing date for the calls for applications for both programmes. 

The results will be announced in mid-June after the General Meeting, which this year will be held in Cameroon from 27 May to 1 June 2024.
