The new £30 million Cultural Protection Fund aims to create opportunities for economic and social development through building capacity to foster, safeguard and promote cultural heritage in conflict-affected regions overseas. Organisations must be working with local partner organisations in one or more of the Fund’s current target countries within the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, specifically: Afghanistan, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Iraq, Palestinian Territories, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey and Yemen. The £30m fund falls within the ODA remit, and the next round will open on Thursday 1 September.

The scheme will operate on two levels: projects under £100,000, and projects above £100,000 (with an upper limit of £3 million).

This internal briefing will be led by Professor David Mattingly and Dr Emma Dwyer and will cover: 

  • An introduction to the scheme
  • The application process and key points from the British Council
  • Q&A, and an opportunity to share existing partnership and provide linkages for colleagues seeking partnerships in the region.

Further information about the fund can be found here.

Please contact Emma Dwyer with any queries and to register your interest in attending.
