Amateo Award 2024 open for entries – European award for participatory cultural projects

The European Network for Active Participation in Cultural Activities Amateo, of which kubia is a member, has announced the Amateo Award 2024. Whether dance, music, theatre, street art or another cultural field: all participatory art projects by amateur groups from all over Europe are invited to take part.

The Amateo Award 2024 offers projects and groups the opportunity to present themselves to an international audience and to make connections with participants, policy makers and funders from across Europe. The winners will win a trip to the Amateo Conference in Prague in November 2024.

The Amateo Award celebrates people’s creativity and showcases the diverse expressions of participatory arts across Europe. The aim is to highlight the potential and impact of participatory arts and cultural engagement for a democratic, diverse and inclusive Europe.

Awards are given to organisations, projects or initiatives in all forms of art and culture that have a strong, positive and lasting impact on their community and inspire others to try something new. This year, we are particularly looking for projects that focus on the following topics

  • Social inclusion and community building
  • Environment and sustainable development

The activities may be either new and innovative or longer lasting approaches which have stood the test of time and are sustainable. The application deadline is 1 July 2024.
