Performing Arts Japan Program for Europe (PAJ Europe) was started by the Japan Foundation in 2006 to revitalize and facilitate the exchange between leading artists in Europe and Japan. The main feature of this scheme is that this grant will be made available to those organisers based in Europe who are planning to organise Japan related performing arts projects. The applications will be screened by an annually appointed panel of advisors who are specialists in the area of performing arts in Europe. Successful applicants will receive grants as part of the cost of implementing their project.
Applications and all relevant materials must be received by the Japan Foundation offices in Europe assigned to your country as stated below no later than 2nd November 2020. Late or incomplete applications, as well as applications submitted only by fax or email, will not be accepted. The Japan Foundation shall not be responsible for applications lost or damaged in transit.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the mail process requires more time than usual for the delivery of materials. Please keep this in mind and ensure that application materials are sent in sufficient time before the deadline.
In case you face significant difficulties in sending the application materials because of the current social situation, please consult with the relevant Japan Foundation offices in Europe.
