The Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and the “la Caixa” Foundation have launched the joint initiative PARTIS & Art for Change, which has one million euros to finance projects that demonstrate the importance art can play in pathways for integration and in building more just and cohesive communities.
This initiative is the result of the work the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and the “la Caixa” Foundation have been carrying out in this regard for several years and which, with this partnership, can now be expanded and intensified.
In 2013, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation launched the PARTIS initiative aimed at supporting projects whose core methodology puts artistic practices at the service of the social inclusion. Over the course of its 3 editions, 48 projects received financing in the total amount of 3 million euros. The first two editions encompassed 11,500 participants and nearly 1,000 public performances were held, mobilizing more than 200 thousand spectators.
The Art for Change initiative was launched in 2008 by the “la Caixa” Foundation in Spain, aimed at supporting art projects that promote social change. Thus far, the initiative has financed 383 projects, corresponding to an amount of approximately 5 million euros, which included 59 thousand participants, 170 cultural organisations and 288 artists.
