Unesco International Fund for Cultural Diversity

The International Fund for Cultural Diversity invests in the cultural and creative industries to empower countries in the Global South, to overcome inequalities, and enrich the entire world.

The International Fund for Cultural Diversity (IFCD) invests in the cultural and creative industries to empower countries in the Global South and enrich the entire world

The IFCD is one of the few United Nations funds that supports arts and cultural bodies, government institutions and non-governmental organizations in the Global South to develop stronger cultural and creative industries (CCIs) in their countries. It funds innovative projects across the globe within the fields of cinema, performing arts, visual arts, and media arts, as well as design, music, and publishing. By working together, we are building lasting change so that everyone can express and enjoy diverse cultural expressions. We invest in people who might otherwise not have the chance to upgrade their skills and networks. We also invest in developing and implementing policies that are based on evidence and are inclusive. The goal is to support communities to build thriving cultural and creative industries.

Apply for funding

Through an open and competitive process, we fund innovative projects with up to US$ 100,000, implemented over a 12–24-month period. The projects are evaluated based on their relevance, feasibility, financial management capacity, expected results, as well.
