Performing Arts Japan for Europe (PAJ Europe)

What is PAJ?

The Japan Foundation’s Performing Arts Japan (PAJ) for Europe programme provides financial support to European organisations that are planning performing arts projects related to Japan. PAJ Europe programme is comprised of the following two categories:

•        TOURING GRANT – assists the presentation process of Japan-related performing arts projects in which the Japanese artist is included in the tour at multiple locations in Europe, with emphasis on locations outside major capital cities where there is no regular exposure to Japanese performing arts.

•        COLLABORATION GRANT – assists the development stage of a project in which Japanese and European artists work collaboratively in order to create a new work that has the potential of being developed into a Touring project in the future, enhancing the understanding of Japanese culture when presented to European audiences.

Eligible Applicants for 2017-2018

PAJ is available to European organisations such as festivals, theatres, or arts promotion companies planning Japan-related performing arts projects in eligible European countries for non-profit purposes taking place between 1st April 2017 and 30th June 2018.
