Report published: “Promoting Democracy through Media and the Arts. Lessons from 10 years of Creative Force.” In May, GGC led process and workshop inviting all grantees of the last 10 years from SIs Creative Force program. The program supports collaborative projects in support of democracy, freedom of speech and gender equality in 30 countries in Europe, MENA, Southern Africa and Asia. The goal was to exchange learnings between projects, create advice for future projects, and provide design guidance for the development of the future of the program towards the Swedish Institute and the Swedish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The resulting report,“Promoting Democracy through Media and the Arts. Lessons from 10 years of Creative Force,”is based on the harvest of results and also outline an analysis of the field of culture and media projects within an international grants context. Placing the program in an increasingly relevant call for inclusive practice and collaborative grantmaking.
