The call for the 3rd edition of the Barcelona Crea Scholarships is open


For audiovisual creation too

The third edition of the Barcelona Crea Scholarships grows in modalities and the number of grants. This initiative of the Institute of Culture of Barcelona was born in 2020 to support scenic, musical, visual, or literary creation in Barcelona. It will award 175 scholarships this year (6,000 euros each) to projects. There are ten categories: Creation in performing arts; Experimentation and rehearsal in performing arts (new); Creation in visual arts; music creation; audiovisual creation; popular cultures; Literary creation and translation; Creation of audiovisual scripts; Creation in art and science and Community creation (new). In total, the ICUB will allocate more than one million euros to the edition, which wants to contribute to the cultural and scientific impulse of the city by offering resources to people and creative groups for the conceptualization, gestation, investigation, experimentation, documentation, and testing of artistic proposals.

The Barcelona Crea 2023 Scholarships present a particularly relevant novelty, the creation of the Scholarships +. Thanks to them, selected projects in the modalities of performing arts, visual, musical, audiovisual, and art and science will be able to benefit from a residency in one of the cultural facilities of the city's Network of Creation Factories, free of charge between two weeks and three months. The residencies provided by Scholarships+ will take place within two years of the notification of the award of the aid.

The deadline for submitting applications will remain open between January 9 and February 9 (both inclusive); Natural persons over 18 years of age, legally constituted legal persons, and groups of natural or legal persons without legal personality can attend the call -in this case, through a representative person. The proposals submitted must be newly created and related to Barcelona or its metropolitan area.
