A new funding scheme for community and cultural organisations interested in short-term town twinning projects has been announced.
Under Europe for Citizens Town Twinning funding, a community or cultural group can apply for a small grant (up to €5000) to fund 25 or more European visitors to take part in a series of events in their locality, celebrating European and local culture, heritage, citizenship, solidarity and debate.
The funding provides a gateway into EU funding to build partnerships and go on to apply for bigger and more ambitious projects.
For more, contact Emma Murtagh at The Wheel, the European Contact Point in Ireland, at email@example.com or call 01 454 8727 or sign up for one of their upcoming training workshops in Galway or Sligo.
