Balkans Arts and Culture Fund

The Balkan Incentive Fund for Culture (BIFC) – run by ECF from 2006 to June 2013 – is now the ‘Balkans Arts and Culture Fund’. Since 1 July 2013, this grant scheme is owned and managed by our partner in the Balkan region, art∡ngle – Balkans | Culture | Development, with the financial support of the Swiss Government and ECF.

About the Balkans Arts and Culture Fund

The Balkans Art and Culture Fund (BAC) operates in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Kosovo, Macedonia and Serbia. This regional fund aims to promote independent cultural scene in the Western Balkans by providing support to socially relevant projects in the field of culture and art, and by encouraging participation and capacity building of cultural workers. At the same time, BAC seeks to facilitate the establishment of a sustainable funding framework for the independent cultural scene.

From 2006 to June 2013, the Balkan Incentive Fund for Culture (BIFC) supported collaborative artistic and cultural projects conceived by organisations within, or cooperating with, the countries of the Western Balkans. The funding stream aimed to strengthen relations across the Western Balkans, as well as strengthening the region’s relations with Europe.

ECF’s decision to devolve responsibility for the fund came after a period of careful consultation with our funding partner, Open Society Foundations. art∡ngle is well positioned to manage the fund in the Balkans, and has a broad coverage and knowledge of the cultural sector. Built upon the legacy of the Swiss Cultural Programme in the Western Balkans, their mission is to promote and advocate the social relevance of arts and culture by supporting cultural actors in their work, strengthening their capacities, and championing cooperation and exchange. art∡ngle’s ambition is to offer organisations in the region a broader opportunity to access seed money – using ECF’s funding as leverage to attract further interest and commitment and to create further possibilities for cultural influence in the Western Balkan region.
