Thank you to everyone who applied to the Amateo Award 2021! We are delighted to see entries from nearly 60 participatory arts projects from 16 countries, led by people who share a strong passion for arts and creativity. Featuring a great mix of art forms, these projects demonstrate resilience and innovative ways to deliver creative activities in the context of COVID-19 restrictions.
We are now shortlisting the applications and will share an update of the results soon this summer.
Meanwhile, we are also hoping to confirm the award ceremony details, set to take place this October in Milan, Italy.
Last year, 64 projects from 16 countries across Europe applied for the Amateo Award 2020 and featured activity focused on young people, older people (including those with dementia), those with different cultural or migrant backgrounds and projects to improve the community or environment.
