[CLOSED] Call for Projects “UNESCO-Aschberg programme for artists and cultural professionals”

Deadline for submission: 3 December 2021

At a time when the COVID-19 pandemic has considerably weakened the creative sector and greatly disrupted the production and distribution of cultural goods and services, UNESCO is giving a new impetus to the UNESCO-Aschberg Programme for Artists and Cultural Professionals to support States and key actors in their efforts to promote the status of the artist and the diversity of cultural expressions. "The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the entire cultural ecosystem and has further highlighted its fragility. As the recent UNESCO report on cultural and creative industries in the face of COVID-19 demonstrates, job losses in this area are conservatively estimated at 10 million worldwide, suggesting a rapid decline in employment that is profoundly affecting the livelihoods of creative workers", stresses Ernesto Ottone Ramirez, UNESCO's Assistant Director-General for Culture.

The mission of the UNESCO-Aschberg programme is to improve the social and economic protection of artists, decent employment and the balanced circulation of cultural goods and services. This is a crucial issue, widely documented by the ResiliArt movement, launched by UNESCO in 2020, with more than 270 debates involving artists, policymakers and cultural organizations from 110 countries. These consultations highlighted the gap in legal, policy and regulatory frameworks related to the status of the artist. They also reaffirmed the importance of the status of artists for economic growth, social cohesion and sustainable development. Such recognition has direct implications in terms of fair remuneration, access to social security and taxation, freedom of movement and artistic expression, etc.

 "With this call for projects, UNESCO aims to reinforce its technical assistance through a cutting-edge expertise to support the development of a more robust creative sector in line with the objectives of the 1980 Recommendation concerning the Status of the Artist and the 2005 Convention on the Protection and the Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions," said Toussaint Tiendrebeogo, Secretary of the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions.

Background and context

The Southern African Migration Management (SAMM) project, funded by the European Commission, is a four-year project to improve migration management in the Southern African and Indian Ocean (SA-IO) region. The SAMM Project takes a ONE-UN collaborative approach and is implemented by four UN agencies: the International Labour Organization (ILO), the International Organisation for Migration (IOM), the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). The SAMM project forms part of the European Union Regional Indicative Programme (11th EDF RIP) for Eastern Africa, Southern Africa and the Indian Ocean (2014–2020) which includes among its objectives the facilitation of safe, orderly and regular migration and the prevention of irregular migration. It focuses on South-South migration flows, identifying positive spill-over effects of international migration on regional integration and regional economic development.

The SAMM project’s overall objective is to improve migration management in the SA-IO region guided by, and contributing to, the realisation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, in particular the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 8 and 10.

Regional Economic Communities (RECs) are key stakeholders in SAMM's implementation. One of SAMM’s key project priorities is to support the formulation and realisation of International Labour Migration and Mixed Migration Frameworks of: i) the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA); ii) the Southern African Development Community (SADC); and iii) the Indian Ocean Commission (IOC).

The project focuses on the Southern African Region, and targets the following 16 SADC countries: Angola, Botswana, Comoros, Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Eswatini, Lesotho, Madagascar, Malawi, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Seychelles, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

2) assessing capacities at REC and national levels to produce and report on statistical labour market indicators (e.g. labour competency standards, national qualification frameworks, etc.) in line with international standards and guidance (including, but not limited to, ICLS Guidelines on statistics for labour migration as well as the Southern African and Indian Ocean minimum labour market indicators documents).

Languages: Excellent command of English. Working knowledge of French and/or Portuguese is an advantage.
