The Alava Association for the Deaf has been selected to receive the Culture Grant!

The award consists of an Internet guidance session with a body from the cultural area. A total of 8 organisations put themselves forward for the grant.

The Culture Grant, for which the application process was open until 15th June, has been awarded to the Alava Association for the Deaf (Arabako Pertsona Gorren Elkartea).  Following this, the Grant Committee will assess the 9 applications that were eligible for the advisory session, to work out how they can make the most of the opportunities the Internet has to offer and it will agree on these for the Basque organisation. The decision will allow culture to be cultivated amongst deaf people on the Internet, a group which communicates through sign language, but which can equally find an accessible space on the net to be able to browse. 

Amongst the organisations that applied for the grant are Córdoba Acoge, Ojobegi, Teretere Education Centre, Yehudi Menuhin Foundation Spain, Federació d’Entitats Calàbria 66, l’Associació Dones Migrants a Catalunya, Art Lliure, Arabako Gorrak and Afaus Pro Salud Mental. The subject matter of the aformentioned organisations is varied, and ranges from social change via an integrated model directed towards different cultures, to the investigation and production of intangible heritage to education through art.

The Culture Grant, intended for not-for-profit entities, consists of a guidance session carried out by and a subsequent report with options on how they can make the most out of the Internet, adapted to the communicative needs of the organisation. In 2015, the grant was awarded to the Guachipelín Foundation and in 2016, to Diversión Solidaria. In the coming months, a new call for grant applications will be made, for entities from another arena, which may be sport, health or science.

Congratulations ARABAKO!
