STEP Beyond travel grants for emerging artists


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

STEP Beyond Travel grants fund up-and-coming artists and cultural workers - giving priority to individuals up to 35 years and/or in the first 10 years of their career - to travel between EU and countries bordering the EU.

Since 2003, STEP  - which stands for ‘Supporting Travel for European Partnerships’ - Beyond Travel Grants have supported the movement of hundreds of people across European borders. In 2011, we awarded 261 individual travel grants of between €250 and €700.

By applying for the STEP Beyond Travel Grant, the artist is automatically joining ECF Labs, an online community of individuals in the field of arts and culture from Europe and beyond. Being part of this community enables the artist to share information about their projects and activities by posting blogs and photographs.

Applicants who are successful will also be able to submit their reports and invoices through their project profile on the Grants Lab.
