STEP beyond Travel Grants
STEP Beyond Travel Grant funds emerging artists and cultural workers to explore and to exchange views, skills and inspiration.

Through our STEP Beyond Travel Grants programme, ECF has been supporting all kinds of cross-border creativity over the past ten years – including music, visual art, theatre, dance, film, documentary, multimedia, design, photography, fashion and cultural capacity building.

STEP Beyond Travel Grants are designed for up-and-coming artists and cultural workers to travel between EU countries and countries bordering the EU. Priority is given to individuals who are under 35 years old and/or who are in the first 10 years of their career.

There is no deadline for this grant scheme, so you can apply at any time but at least one month before your planned travel. The selection process takes up to one month.
