European Commission is seeking proposals for its Creative Europe-Cross Sectoral Refugees Integration Projects 2016 to support cultural, audio-visual and cross-sectorial projects that aim to facilitate the integration of refugees into European communities by fostering respect and understanding for diversity, democratic values and citizenship, intercultural dialogue, tolerance and respect for other cultures.

Priority will be given to projects that can:
- help refugees and migrants socialize and express themselves without necessarily speaking immediately the host country language.
- be learning platforms in a wider sense, fostering respect and understanding for diversity, intercultural and civic competencies, democratic values and citizenship.
- give EU citizens the opportunity to discover, learn from and understand the values and cultures of refugees and migrants and – in the process rediscover and enrich their own.
- support the showcasing and co-creation of cultural and/or audiovisual works across Europe.
- offer the possibility of collaboration with organisations in other sectors in order to stimulate a more comprehensive, rapid, effective and long-term response to this global challenge.
- An estimated budget of 1,6 million EURO is available for co financing up to 80% of the total eligible budget.
