Artistic and free creations for better diversity, social cohesion and peace


Submission deadline 30.11.2023

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 Regional Open Call provides opportunities to organize regional projects within Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan by a consortium of independent art and culture organizations to increase regional interactions, strengthening networks, exchanges, and initiatives for better social cohesion. 

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