PLAN_T: International opportunities

As an open platform for the cooperation of the various institutions of the Prague art scene, Prague Art Week also aims to provide artists and art enthusiasts with space for inspiration and suggestions for moving within the European and international art field.

As part of this initiative, a list has been created with a series of annual grants and opportunities on a world panorama. This resource can be consulted for starting a variety of projects and collaborations. From emerging artists to established professionals, anyone dealing with art can refer to it for information on available grants and opportunities.

The list includes various opportunities in different areas of the art world, including but not limited to fine arts, performing arts, visual arts, and media arts. By providing such a diverse range of resources, PAW hopes to support the growth and development of artists and art institutions in Prague and beyond.

The Culture Moves Europe

The Culture Moves Europe mobility programme has also opened a call for individual mobility, covering the sectors of architecture, cultural heritage, design and fashion, literary translation, music, performing arts and visual arts.  The call is open to both established and emerging artists and can be used in the context of collaborations, the production of exhibitions, but also, for example, for personal research in the context of one’s own work.
