The Aswatona Fund for Media Development, an initiative co-financed by the European Union to strengthen the independent media sector in North Africa and the Middle East, launched its second call for grant proposals for the development of community media.
It will support five actions: exchange of experience and good practices; audience development and sustainability; social or cultural media productions; the encouragement of media policy dialogue; and strengthening networking and solidarity. The deadline for submitting applications is June 18th 2015. More information here.
The project is part of “Media and Culture for Development in the Southern Mediterranean”, a programme which aims to strengthen the role of media and culture as vectors of democratization and economic and social development in countries of the Southern Mediterranean (Algeria, Egypt, Israel, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Syria, Occupied Palestinian Territory and Tunisia).
