 Deadline: Applications should be submitted by 10 March 2003. 


 The Capacity Building Program is aimed at:

Capitalizing the previous activities (achievements) of the Arts and Culture Network program after its phasing down by transmitting a substantial part of its role to capable institutions, organizations and resource centers in Central and Eastern Europe, Central Asia, Caucasus and Mongolia, so that the selected organizations undertake the role of a "knowledge- transmitter", advocate core issues in public debates and assist the "new-comers" in developing strategic thinking and activities. This "delegation" of the network strategy to grass-root organizations and local/regional institutions, which are already capable to fulfill a key role in the region, is of crucial importance in regional capacity development in the cultural sphere and empowerment of local actors.

Strengthening the capacity of several regional institutions (by providing a substantial organizational grant) in the following fields: Art management training center; Policy research center; Art for social change center, Central Asia, Caucasus and Balkan regional centers. These institutions will be selected in the course of an international competition.



 The amount of the grant for each organization is up to $ 50 000.

All types of cultural and artistic organizations are eligible to apply.

 The Sub-Board of the Arts and Culture Network program and external experts will finally review those applications, which pass the national level of evaluation. The results will be announced by the end of May 2003.

Applications should be submitted by E-mail, in an attached doc or rtf file to arnold@soros.hu. Applications that are not submitted in the above way and by the deadline will not be considered. Further information if needed: tel: 315-0315 (please refer to the code number of the application - 433).
