Opportunities and Deadlines

DEADLINE EXTENDED: ETC Development Grants

Apply for funding for collaboration projects between 3 ETC Member Theatres.

The ETC Drama Committee will support two new European contemporary drama texts and their international trajectory -- by circulating them within its membership and translating them into English.

The ETC Development Grants are a new scheme to support innovative international co-creations of new dramatic narratives.

ETC offers 3 development grants per season to ETC Member theatres working artistically with at least two partner theatres. This means 3 ETC theatres can collectively apply for up to 5000 EUR funding for any new artistic collaboration they make together.

The 3 ETC theatres applying for an ETC Development Grant of up to 5000 EUR can individually decide how to share and use the financial support. Eligible costs are travel costs supporting the international collaboration, artist fees, production, software- or hardware costs, etc. pp.
