FEDORA supports innovation on, behind and beyond the stage through its two funding programmes.

Next call for applications in 2024.


FEDORA Prizes Biennale

FEDORA Prizes Biennale


The FEDORA Prizes Biennale matches cutting-edge innovative artistic on stage projects led by emerging artists with international funding opportunities enabling the unexpected to reach audiences. The Prizes are awarded every two years to promising artists and teams of co-producing cultural institutions who collaborate on the creation of new opera or dance productions.

  • The FEDORA Education Prize
  • The FEDORA Digital Prize


Organisations working in performing arts production (opera houses, dance companies, festivals and theatres) can apply for the prizes if they are a member of the FEDORA network.

The productions can be entirely new or represent the next scaling step of an already initiated project, according to the category. Opening nights/project launches must take place within the time frame of June 2025 and December 2026.

Projects should involve multiple partner organisations in its development and realisation. (For opera and dance categories applicants must involve at least one international partner.)
