Deadline: June 30, 2018

Zdjęcie użytkownika LUCKY TRIMMER e.V.


LUCKY TRIMMER is on the hunt for daring artistic projects that use creativity to affect positive social change!


In 2016 LUCKY TRIMMER launched the LUCKY CHANGEMAKER. This initiative supports artistic projects that use a creative practice as an innovative conduit for a social cause or as a catalyst for social change. Annually LUCKY TRIMMER grants a 500 € award to the recipient of the LUCKY

CHANGEMAKER to contribute to the development, continuation or realisation of his/her project.

What is the LUCKY CHANGEMAKER grant for?

  • Projects that embody the LUCKY spirit and that are engaged with physicality, movement and performance. All artistic disciplines are eligible (dance, visual arts, theatre, film/video, music, performance-based arts, interdisciplinary arts).
  • Projects that increase environmental awareness, promote social equality, showcase art’s social dimension, address cultural responsiveness and social responsibility.
  • Projects that engage socially underprivileged community members who would normally not have access to culture as equal partners, that encourage under resourced communities to overcome barriers, to participate in creative process and that create equitable access to culture.


Who can apply?

  • Any individual artists, collectives or institutions, regardless of their geographic location.
  • Artists addressing critical social issues of our times. There are social situations in the world that are deeply affecting people. Our goal is to use art that is engaged emotionally and intellectually to inspire anyone to be agents of change.
  • We value the process as much as the product. Relationship building is a key goal and projects do not have to automatically result in a physical artwork or a performance. Workshops, training, studio practice are eligible, if they directly relate to achieving outcomes of a community-based project.
  • The initiative/project must be implemented in 2018/2019 (latest by April 2019).
