The Swiss Development and Cooperation Agency (SDC) will launch a new Central Asia Regional Arts and Culture Programme 2.0. (CAACP 2.0.), which will last until July 2027, with geographical coverage of Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan.  

The CAACP 2.0. aims to support a vibrant, open art and culture scene in Central Asia, promoting freedom of expression and social cohesion through diverse artistic expressions.

The CAACP 2.0. prioritizes the support for independent art and culture creators in the region as active civil society members. Theatre, visual arts, music, art management, cinema, and animation are focus domains of the CAACP 2.0.  

 The CAACP 2.0. will support independent art and culture in Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan by providing funds for regional projects through the Regional Open Call and national organizations through the National Open Calls in the covered countries.

The National Open Call provides an opportunity to get a long-term partnership for empowerment artists, cultural institutions, and their audiences to exercise their right to free expression and engage in diverse cultural activities. 

Interested independent art and culture organizations in Uzbekistan are welcome to apply and send all requested documents to the email
