Funding for Arts & the SDGs

Posted on: Friday, 05 July 2019 20:05

Our EU project, Start the Change!, has launched a call for proposals - 'GlobART 2030: fight inequalities for sustainable development'.

The aim is to award financial support (from 6,000 to 8,000 Euros) to third parties.


"The call for proposals 'GlobART 2030' is aimed at CSOs (Civil Society Organizations) who are based and operate in United Kingdom (UK) or Italy or Germany or Spain or France, who intend to promote and experiment educational actions, with young people aged between 14 and 25, that stimulate a reflection on the connection between global inequalities and migrations, through the use of artistic and creative languages (theatre, music, cinema, etc.) to contribute to the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The arts have been used to impart humankind's morals, values, and condemned injustices, and expressed new perspectives on society's well-being. The SDGs are the world's most comprehensive way to achieve economic growth, social inclusion, and environmental sustainability. By blending rational and emotional expression, the arts serve as the ideal medium to convey the SDGs and inspire audiences to take action.

The aim of this call for proposals is to contribute, through the use of artistic languages, to the development of knowledge and critical sense among young people with respect to the connection between migration and global inequalities, referring to one or more Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)."


You'll find more information and the required documents for submitting a proposal right here.

Interested parties may submit a project idea, no later than 15.00 (CET) on 02 August 2019, by sending an electronic copy of the documents to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

The Change So Far

Posted on: Monday, 20 May 2019 19:19

Our 3 year Start The Change project is already having an impact across its 12 European countries. Together with our 15 partners, we're aiming to work with 1300 teachers, inspire and engage 26,400 students and establish 70 networks.

With some of the most exciting work still to come, you can see here how we're getting on so far...

Ben (one of our Global Learning Officers), has recently been involved with teachers from North West Sutherland. He delivered the first part of our Getting Started With Rights CPD to teachers from across the local schools group and will return in August for part 2.

Deputy Head Katy Lee very kindly provided us with this spotlight on their School Partnership activities and how these have contributed to their ongoing integration of Global Citizenship in the schools' teaching. They have used their connections to help them to incorporate the Global Goals (SDGs), Rights, climate and more. Cultural exchanges and knowledge sharing has helped all the partner schools to build strong supportive relationships with one another.
